    I am writing, with sinful pleasure, a Comedy:

    3 lovers, 2 celebrities, 1 Gun, no Plot & lots of Love.
    – Anton Chekhov

    More than a hundred years after its premier, we re-imagine Chekhov’s greatest play for a modern audience, in a new version by Simon Haines (“very funny” Germaine Greer).

    Chekhov’s comedy and his cruelty is laid bare in a dark comedy about the regrets and romantic entanglements of a gaggle of actors/writers/artists gathered on a lake-side estate in pursuit of love, sex, fame – or simply a round of applause.

    (Praise for Simon Haines' previous writing/directing:)

    • "A gratifying gem of a production." – The Stage | - "A little ray of sunshine." – TCS | - "Great new writing, flawlessly acted, and very, very funny... You won’t just enjoy it, you’ll remember it." – Varsity
