Adapt Or Die: Plays New and Used
These four plays by celebrated Canadian dramatist Jason Sherman bring works by three Russian masters kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century. The Brothers Karamazov captures the spirit, scope, and dark humor of Dostoevsky's novel. Gorky's unknown gem Enemies and Chekhov's bright farce The Bear are given vibrant, contemporary language. After the Orchard, inspired by Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, is placed in contemporary Ontario cottage country.
