This adaptation by Black Coffee Theatre relocates the action to the roaring 1920's. The Bright Young Things have changed the mood in town fuelled by the boom of jazz, fashion and the arts, but on an estate in the country there is only a lake, and the people around it burn for something more. The adaptation creates a fresh, concise story for a modern audience who may not be familiar with the romantic and dramatic devices that Chekhov uses, whilst still retaining the feel and power of the original.
Anyone who knows Chekhov, whether actor, writer or scholar, has an opinion on how it should be interpreted and performed. In this version BCT are not saying how they think Chekhov should be performed, but how Chekhov could be performed. Leave your preconceptions at the door and immerse yourself in the world created as they attempt to excavate and define the work of a master of Russian theatre
