Considered to be one of the most important plays of the 19th century, the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre commissioned this new version by Torben Betts to celebrate the 120th anniversary of Chekov’s original play.

The story is set as guests assemble at a country house for the staging of an open air play. Soon artistic temperaments ignite drama behind the scenes, filled with romantic jealousies, self-doubt and the pursuit of happiness.
