‘To love without hope, to spend whole years waiting for something …’
1893. The Russian countryside. A beautiful summer night begins a tangle of emotional intrigues, unrequited love, family quarrels, bungled seductions, unaccustomed idleness and the steady thrum of time passing.
Chekhov explores art, love and comic despair, in a play that changed the template of modern drama.
