The works of Russia’s greatest playwright, Anton Chekhov, masterfully blend comedy and pathos, creating a richness of texture and characterization rarely seen since Shakespeare. With Three Sisters (1901), his portrait of the Prozorov family’s elusive dream of returning from the provinces to an idealized Moscow, he captured a restlessness and yearning which remain enduringly modern. In Paul Schmidt’s version – the basis for the Wooster Group’s acclaimed adaptation Brace Up! – we can perceive, for the first time in English, a refreshingly clear and colloquial style we instinctively know as Chekhov’s own. ANTON CHEKHOV (1860-1904) led a double life as a practicing physician and a celebrated author of short stories and plays. The Moscow Art Theater’s stagings of The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, The Cherry Orchard and Three Sisters – under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky – secured Chekhov’s reputation as a world-class dramatist. PAUL SCHMIDT edited Meyerhold at Work and has translated writings by Rimbaud, Khlebnikov, Gogol, Kaiser, Mayakovsky and Genet. Recipient of an NEA fellowship and of a doctorate in Russian from Harvard University, his translations, adaptations and original plays have been performed across the country.

A group of people sit around a table theorising, categorising and telling stories. Their real purpose is never quite clear, but they continue on, searching for the monstrous. Part satire, part sacred rite, Annie Baker's play The Antipodes asks what value stories have for a world in crisis. First seen at Signature Theatre, New York, in 2017, the play had its UK premiere at the National Theatre, London, in 2019.

“Pevear and Volokhonsky are at once scrupulous translators and vivid stylists of English.” —James Wood, New Yorker The Seagull, in this new translation for TCG’s Russian Drama Series, includes lines and variants found in Chekhov’s final version of the play, but omitted from the script for the original performance at the Moscow Art Theatre in 1898, which went on to become the standard printed version. The restored text, a product of the continuing collaboration of playwright Richard Nelson and translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, provides valuable insight into Chekhov’s intentions in his groundbreaking play. Richard Nelson’s many plays include The Apple Family: Scenes from Life in the Country (That Hopey Changey Thing, Sweet and Sad, Sorry, Regular Singing); The Gabriels: Election Year in the Life of One Family (Hungry, What Did You Expect?, Women of a Certain Age); Nikolai and the Others; Goodnight Children Everywhere (Olivier Award for Best Play); Franny’s Way; Some Americans Abroad; Frank’s Home; Two Shakespearean Actors and James Joyce’s The Dead (with Shaun Davey; Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical). Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have translated the works of Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Nikolai Gogol, Anton Chekhov, Boris Pasternak and Mikhail Bulgakov. Their translations of The Brothers Karamazov and Anna Karenina won the PEN Translation Prize in 1991 and 2002, respectively. Pevear, a native of Boston, and Volokhonsky, of St. Petersburg, are married and live in France.

Eimuntas Nekrosius is a Lithuanian theatre director acclaimed by critics nationally and internationally. Belonging to the post-World War II generation of Eastern European directors, Nekrosius established his career during the tenure of the Soviet Socialist Regime and remains the most prominent metteur en scène in contemporary Lithuania. Nekrosius and his company of actors invent energetic movement sequences and poignant images where gestures and actions enhance or frame the text. This progressive mainstream theatre crosses cultural boundaries and does not depend on sociopolitical persuasions for its success. By creating innovative and alternative productions of globally recognized literary classics, such as Chekhov, Gogol, Pushkin, and Shakespeare, Nekrosius is one of the great directors of this century.

"Wonderfully fresh and affecting." - Ben Brantley, New York Times "This lucid interpretation rewards with its deep understanding of a complex play." -David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter The works of Russia's greatest playwright, Anton Chekhov, masterfully blend comedy and pathos, creating a richness of texture and characterization rarely seen since Shakespeare. With Three Sisters (1901), his portrait of the Prozorov family's elusive dream of returning from the provinces to an idealized Moscow, he captured a restlessness and yearning which remain enduringly modern.
