THE NEW SCHOOL FOR DRAMA presents
Workshop Performance Series
Classic and modern works staged in a final rehearsal atmosphere with minimal sets, lights, costumes, and props.
February 24-26, 2011
BRANCHES: THE CHEKHOV PROJECT
Conceived and directed by Casey Biggs
Freely adapted from the plays of Chekhov by Robert Hoyt
Anton Chekhov is considered one of the greatest classic European dramatists, giving us compelling plays such as The Seagull, The Cherry Orchard, Three Sisters, and Uncle Vanya. BRANCHES: THE CHEKHOV PROJECT explores these plays’ commonalty of theme, character, structure, and action, as they are played out side-by-side – and on top of each other – in this creative amalgamation of his works.
