By Anton Chekhov
New version by Libby Appel
Directed by Katie Brook

Quantum’s Karla Boos takes the stage as Madame Ranevskaya in Libby Appel’s celebrated version of Anton Chekhov’s greatest play. Joining Karla in the cast are long-time collaborator Peter Duschenes (Richard II; The Merchant of Venice) and in a Pittsburgh first, the entire theatrical Lehane/Klatscher family. Directed by Katie Brook, the outdoor summer location is fabulous OneValley, near Hazelwood Green, a slick co-working space that references its past along the Mon.
