Kevin Kline starred at New York's Lincoln Center as the disillusioned Russian estate owner in this distinctive adaptation of Chekhov's first full length play.
"Punchy text [with] ... many very funny moments and a few extraordinarily moving ones." - N.Y. Times
"Hare's adaptation is strong in the fresh fluency of the dialogue. It's good to have a real playwright at the helm of a translation, and one who pulls no punches in its delineation of Russian anti Semitism and in the characterizations." - N.Y. Post.
