When a retired professor is forced to retire to an estate in the vast country emptiness, his arrival, along with his beautiful young wife, devastates the routine and habits of those who are now part of his life. Shattered illusions, deep secrets, and the desire for love run thru Anton Chekhov’s masterful play, which has been staged in theatres for over one hundred years.
Both joyously comic and poignantly tragic, this newly adapted interpretation by Rod Mechem, captures all of Chekhov’s dynamic characters, each struggling to find a life of meaning and happiness. The observations and themes on time, work, and love that were presented 120 years ago, are just as recognizable and resonant today.
Directed by guest director Rod Mechem.
