WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Academy award nominees David Strathairn and Mary McDonnell will join longtime People's Light company members in Emily Mann's acclaimed adaptation of Chekhov's masterwork. A bankrupt matriarch and her brother are offered a lucrative scheme to save their family estate in this comedy-drama of timeless, bittersweet beauty. "Mann's elegant yet spare adaptation reminds theatergoers that the century old play is an apt choice for the new millennium" (Variety).
