New Ohio Theatre hosts
Blessed Unrest

Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens
From the play by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Jessica Burr


A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Laura Wickensí focused, raw, and riotous adaptation rips the heart out of Anton Chekhovís scandalous first play, with six actors delivering all the intensity of the five hour classic in 90 minutes.
