Calista Flockhart, T.R. Knight, Stephen Collins, Josh Stamberg and Dakin Matthews star when L.A. Theatre Works opens its 2012-13 season with Chekhov’s masterpiece. Set on a country estate by a lake in 19th century Russia, the idyllic locale belies the turbulent passions of its inhabitants. When the famed but aging actress Irina Arkádina returns home with her younger lover, she finds a household overflowing with creativity, fantasies of fame, jealousy and unrequited love.

"We're thrilled to have such a stellar cast to interpret Christopher Hampton’s spectacular translation, and that Calista is back to open our season for the second year in a row,” says L.A. Theatre Works producing director Susan Loewenberg.

All performances will be recorded to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
