Check out this new production of Anton Chekhov's very first play. Mixing romantic intrigue with tragedy and farce, Ivanov is the tale of a financially troubled member of the elite, who's married to a dying woman, but finds himself attracted to the beautiful young daughter of his creditor -- a dangerous situation in a community obsessed with gossip and greed.
