Adapt or Die (print)

The murder of a wealthy landowner leads to the arrest of his eldest son. A grieving widow matches wits with her late husband’s aggressive creditor. Family loyalties are severely tested over the fate of a beloved summer home. Factory workers kill a hated boss and connive to hide the killer.

The Brothers Karamazov captures the spirit, scope and dark humour of the Dostoevsky novel. Gorky’s unknown gem Enemies and Chekhov’s bright farce The Bear are given vibrant, contemporary language. Joining these three adaptations is an entirely new play, After the Orchard, inspired by Chekhov’s last play and placed in contemporary Ontario cottage country. No matter the setting, Russian never sounded so good.

THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV, from the novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky (Constance Garnett translation)
THE BEAR, a new version of the vaudeville by Anton Chekhov
ENEMIES, an adaptation of the play by Maxim Gorky
AFTER THE ORCHARD, a new play inspired by Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard
