Chekhov’s final play about a family on the edge of ruin and a country on the brink of revolution is reimagined for 2019.

Heartbroken and bankrupt, Lyubov Andreyevna returns to her family farm, only to find it on the brink of bankruptcy. She is offered an easy way out: sell the property and live comfortably on the profits. Can she let go of the past in order to secure a future for her family?
