New York City
Meet the original dysfunctional family: A young writer’s girlfriend is in love with his mother’s celebrity boyfriend, who loves them both. And then things get complicated. Romantic and artistic desires clash in Chekhov’s comedic masterpiece.
This accessible new adaptation directed and adapted by Michael Barakiva highlights the comedy found in the agony of everyday life. Chekhov’s dark comedic masterpiece pokes fun at situations which today’s audiences can relate to: hating your job, loving someone who doesn’t love you back, keeping a family together, and trying to make a better life for yourself.
