Description

By Anton Chekhov, Adapted by Richard Kramer

Directed By Jon Kretzu

Director Jon Kretzu, who has been working with Kramer for years on this project, describes this adaptation as “ghostlike and ethereal,” and not a traditional treatment of this play. The story’s themes of the rising bourgeois and the fall of aristocracy are explored but Kramer has taken much liberty with the play’s dialogue and character development.

Richard Kramer is a writer for both television and the stage.  He has been a writer and producer for the television series _thirtysomething, My So-Called Life _and Judging Amy.  His play Theater District was produced by Artists Rep in 2006
