 Sherri's Playhouse welcomes you to the martially conniving world of Anton Chekhov, through the talent of playwright Roy Proctor's Chekhov's Revenge.

 In America, Chekhov is revered primarily as a father of modern drama. In his native Russia, however, he’s celebrated much more as a master of the short story. From aristocrats to peasants, from mansions to shacks, the sweep of his stories is as expansive as Mother Russia herself. Little in the Russian character escaped his notice, especially not when it involved marital mischief and the price it might entail.  “Chekhov’s Revenge,” which playwright Roy Proctor adapted from two Chekhov short stories, takes a double-header look at marital revenge, Chekhov style.
