"Spectacular...This new Vanya has a conversational smoothness that removes the cobwebs sticking to those other translations that never let you forget that the play was written in 1897... One of the most exquisite renderings of Uncle Vanya I've encountered." --Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

"Quietly arresting... A canny and colloquial world-premiere translation... A beautifully rewarding exploration of stunted lives still bending toward the meager sunlight, like wildflowers sprouting from a cracked sidewalk." --James Hebert, San Diego Union-Tribune

As the sixth play in the TCG Classic Russian Drama Series, Richard Nelson and preeminent translators of Russian literature, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, continue their collaboration with Chekhov's most intimate play.

The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov

The Inspector by Nikolai Gogol

Moli re, or The Cabal of Hypocrites and Don Quixote by Mikhail Bulgakov

A Month in the Country by Ivan Turgenev

The Seagull by Anton Chekhov
