Inspired by Anton Chekhov’s pastoral comedies, Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies brings this funny and poignant world premiere – helmed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan – to the Geffen Playhouse. Gathering in their Berkshire home during the Williamstown summer theater season, a family of actors wrestles with fame, art and, as always, each other. But when the events of the weekend go off-script, secrets are spilled and bonds are broken – threatening an already fragile foundation of a home brimming with old memories, new love and discarded dreams.
