In Afterplay, the Dancing at Lughnasa playwright Brian Friel imagines a small cafe in 1920s Moscow where Sonya, Uncle Vanya‘s niece, is the only customer until the arrival of Andrey, brother of the Three Sisters. Afterplay provides a touching coda for two of Chekhov’s most enduring characters. Featuring Quotidian favorites David Dubov and Michele Osherow. Directed by artistic director Jack Sbarbori.
Chekhov’s short story A Little Trick is transformed into a succinct memory play where the narrator tells of the young lady who might have been the love of his life. A world premiere adapted by Quotidian’s co-founder and artistic director Jack Sbarbori. Featuring Jonathan Feuer and Sara Dabney Tisdale, with violin accompaniment by Christine Kharazian. Directed by Quotidian co-founder Stephanie Mumford.
