Confined in his villa at Yalta by illness in April of 1900, Chekhov receives a delightful visit by the Moscow Art Theatre. They have embarked on a provincial tour with the express purpose of persuading Chekhov to give them his latest play. Noteworthy characters include Stanislavski, Valdmir Nemirovich Danchenko, Gorky, Ivan Bunin and actress Olga Knipper who Chekhov, a confirmed bachelor, contemplates marrying even as he acknowledges his advancing consumption. The play is criss crossed with amorous triangles, battles of ego, high spirits and melancholic languor reminiscent of Chekhov’s work.

Cast: Michelle Ljungcrantz, Michael Gunning, Johannes Melfi, Juliana Goncalves, Susann Roethke, Kameron Basseri, Alec Whaite, Vincent Eclavea Jr., Laura Crane, Kirt Barnes, Edward MacGregor
