In 'The Chekhov Dreams,' Jeremy’s fiancée has it all – beauty, intelligence, beguiling charm. She’s also dead, but that doesn’t stop her from visiting him every night in his dreams. This blissfully aberrant arrangement unravels with the interference of Jeremy’s hedonistic brother and his overly enthusiastic acting scene partner, with whom he’s stuck working on a scene by Chekhov – the one writer he loathes. Worse yet, this actress is starting to arouse the jealousy of his betrothed just as she’s beginning to reveal her true powers. Jeremy’s fiancée may be to die for, but will he go that far?
