WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Set in late 19th century Ireland during the time of the National Land League, a political movement advocating for poor tenant farmers, Thomas Kilroy unearths fascinating parallels to the shifts in Russian society that inform Chekhov's original. This acclaimed adaptation illuminates the play's universal themes while revealing new social and political angles.
