With sparkling humor and unflinching humanity, Chekhov spins a playful yarn around thwarted hopes and misplaced dreams as a warm reminder that “it is always in season for old men to learn” and that Coming of Age is not just for the young, merely the young at heart.

I used late 1800s Russian furniture to set a mundane scene that plays off the realism found in the work, dealing with the passage of time and wasted time. I placed more exciting scenes hidden within to encourage the viewer really looking through it. … Some of them appeared physically and metaphorically throughout the play. The idea is to really play off the idea that while quite a bit happens throughout the play, by the end, everything is seemingly the same as before, just like the normal passage of time in life.
