US Premiere of new version by Tom Stoppard! A sort of comic Hamlet, Ivanov is overcome with inertia and self-disgust. his wife is dying and he feels nothing. He is drowning in debt and despair, and he does nothing. Is it him? Is it Russia? Ivanov was the twenty-seven-year-old Chekhov's shot at dispatching the 'superfluous man' of Russian literature, and in surrounding him with a brilliantly drawn set of provincial types he created some of the finest comedy he ever wrote.
Two plays by Brian Friel, inspired by Anton Chekhov! In "The Yalta Game" (inspired by "Lady with the Lapdog"), two strangers almost manage to convince one another that disappointments are 'merely the postponement of happiness to come...' "Afterplay" features Uncle Vanya's niece Sonya, now in her forties and the only customer in a run-down cafe in 1920's Moscow...until the arrival of the Three Sisters' brother Andrei.
"Three Sisters" poignantly conveys the lives, struggles, loves and secret desires of sisters Masha, Olga and Irina and their somehwat ineffectual brother Andrei. Set in a mythological provencial town in late 19th century Russia, we see their lives unfold before our eyes.
