That thumping, off-balance washing-machine sound you hear whenever anyone produces a Chekhov "tragedy"? It's just the playwright rolling over in his grave. Chekhov always insisted that his works were comedies, ridiculing an insulated Russian upper crust that, despite overwhelming economic, educational, and social privileges, could never find a way to shake its apparently lifelong ennui. Bartlett Theater is to produce British playwright/adaptor Anya Reiss's fresh take al fresco, on the grounds of a country farmhouse near Eno River State Park. (Don't forget your walking shoes.) The production features Adam Kampouris and Moriah Williams as the star-crossed Konstantin and Nina; Jonathan Bohun Brady directs. —Byron Woods
