A Rain of Seagulls by Meron Langsner tackles every Chekhovian theme known to man in roughly 40 minutes —meaning, of course, the cast is heavily armed and rather morose.

Our Vanya, Ourselves by Matthew Foster is a mash-up between Anton's Uncle Vanya and "Sisters and Other Strangers," a classic episode of The Golden Girls. Yes, you read that right.

See you there!
