Vodka Variations an evening of Chekhov shorts
Join us for a spirited toast to Russian culture and Anton at his funniest. It this libation of Chekov’s one-act plays and adapted short stories, we are reminded of just how tipsy-turvy human nature can be, no matter the century. From the streets of 1880s Moscow come everyday people who misjudge, misinterpret, and mistake the world around them simply because they crave the intoxication of life and love. As Chekhov himself once observed: “Any idiot can face a crisis; it’s this day-to-day living that wears you out.”

Heather Raffo’s internationally-acclaimed show examines the lives, hopes, dreams and fears of nine Iraqi and Iraqi-American women in the time between the first and second Gulf Wars.
