The Russian Arts Theater and Studio invites you to take a trip to the summer resort of Yalta in this new play based on the short stories of Anton Chekhov. More…
While vacationing alone in the Crimean sea resort of Yalta, a Moscow playboy quickly finds himself having another affair—this time with a married woman who wanders along the shore with her pet dog. However, their lives are soon uprooted as they realize they have found true love. Interwoven around their romance are ten of Chekhov’s most colorful anecdotes, including 'Fish, Death of a Government Clerk,' 'Confessions,' 'A Chorus Girl,' 'Overspiced,' 'A Little Joke,' 'Daughter of Albion,' 'Surgery,' 'Elements Most Found in Short Stories,' 'A Happy Ending and Life is Beautiful.' Join the cast of nine colorful characters as they fumble through love, loss, and the beautiful absurdity of life.
