A contemporary spin on Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, in which a group of individuals explores life's most perplexing questions and ponders whether life really does suck. Imagine Woody Allen interpreting the Russian playwright in modern times and you will understand a fraction of the hysterical angst.

"This is a play that makes us laugh, makes us think and makes us feel."
-The Columbus Dispatch
