Miscreant Theatre will ravage Chekhov's first full-length drama with a new adaptation by co-artistic directors Jacob Knoll and Jeff Barry. Ivanov offers a petri dish view into Chekhov's anti-hero - 32 year old Nicholas Ivanov - once prosperous and idealistic; now feckless, absent, and riddled with depression.
In this adaptation, Ivanov struggles to make sense of his vulgar existence while his wife tries to accept her lonely death. In a community obsessed with gossip and greed, Miscreant will investigate the underlying complexities of hate and love along with Chekhov's depraved sense of humor.
