When a seemingly normal day at the office turns out to be anything but, these aspiring journalists recognize an opportunity to seize a career-defining moment. In this dark comedy, MacArthur "Genius" grant winner Jacobs-Jenkins skewers the cutthroat, opportunistic culture of modern media.
Robert Falls, “Chicago’s most essential director” (Chicago Tribune), helms Chekhov’s masterpiece in a new adaptation from Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker.
Tensions are high at the remote estate of an elderly professor, where resentments flow as freely as the vodka. As the professor’s health fails, his extended family is forced to confront their disturbing futures, while still foundering in their disconcerting pasts. Acclaimed playwright Annie Baker (The Flick) injects a “distinctly contemporary American sound” (Vareity) into Chekhov’s famed tale, creating a work that’s both refreshing and true to the iconic playwright’s vision.
