By Karen Sunde.

Cast: 2m., 5w. (2 or more actors of either gender.) This breathlessly romantic true story begins backstage and winds through Anton Chekhov's life in the theatre. We meet the bewitching Lika, whom he will not take and cannot let go, and his valiant sister Masha, who gives up her happiness for his peace. We are caught up in Chekhov's stormy partnership with the irrepressible Stanislavski; his passionate star-crossed marriage to the brilliant actress Olga Knipper; the final clash over his magnificent Cherry Orchard; and Chekhov's tragic death. With infectious laughter and tears, this ensemble makes the story unfold, giving birth to the Moscow Art Theatre and their own souls, and enchanting any audience. "...remarkable... (Sunde) juxtaposes humor and suspense and grief and elation, leaving us not the tiniest fraction of a moment to stop feeling intensely..." (Plays International) "...pure and delicious... delightfully grand." (Time Out)
