“One of the most deliberately and effectively confrontational American Playwrights of his generation”
– The New York Times
A group of New York theater people retreat to a house in the Hudson Valley hoping to get away from it all. Except they can’t seem to escape the ambitions, rivalries and fragile egos that follow them everywhere. Chekhov’s sharp satirical eye for hypocrisy and self-absorption among well-meaning people is given fresh, fun emphasis as Thomas Bradshaw (Intimacy, Burning) returns to The New Group with his contemporary reworking of a classic masterpiece.

The safety of our audiences is one of The New Group’s top priorities. In accordance with Signature Theater policies, masks must be worn during all shows in our 2022-23 season.
