On a Russian estate, somewhere south of St Petersburg, sometime between 1895 and today, Ivan Petrovich is feeling glum. Sofia Alexandrovna’s usual stern self has suddenly turned a little frisky and there is tension in the air between Yelena (what a goddess!) and Aleksandr which is not helped by the intrusions of Mikhail Lvovich and his talk of love.


This adaptation by Michael Beh of Anton Chekhov’s classic 1897 play promises a lush and gorgeous evening of unrequited love and inconceivably poor marksmanship.


Better hide the vodka.



We are independent, professional artists working together to bring classical theatre to new life.

Our name is derived from a broad take on the concept of curation, a word born of the Latin for “one who cares”. Because we do.
