Unit Set/Multiple Settings

This version of Chekhov's classic premiered at New York's Central Park Delacorte Theatre with an all-star cast featuring Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Natalie Portman.

Irina, a fading, middle-aged actress; Trigorin, a dissolute but popular writer whom greatness has passed by, and the actress' frustrated, melancholy son Constantin who is lovesick over Nina, are the players in this bittersweet tragedy of lives and love gone wrong. Nina, enchanted by the debonair Trigorin and obsessed with acting on the stage, follows Trigorin to the city where she bears him a child and becomes a common dilletante. Ultimately deserted by the older man, Nina returns and again rejects Constantin's overtures of love.
