A highly theatrical distillation of Anton Chekhov’s classic tragicomedy Uncle Vanya, by way of Samuel Beckett’s Endgame.
Somewhere between a frozen nowhere and the end of things, humankind’s representatives—two men and a woman—wait for their lives to begin, or end. As they rebound between the indifference of the without and the intractable within, they kill time, kill pain, act out, and play. Frustration mounts and sense comes unmoored, until, finally, it ends.
