Happy wife, happy life?
With mortgages to pay and sickly fathers to care for, Chekhov’s heroines are in a bind. They've got to coolly weigh up the practical benefits of marriage against their true feelings. Our usual assumptions about love and marriage unravel in this bold new production of two of Chekhov's wryest comedies in versions by Michael Frayn.
Performed by a gender-fierce company of queer identifying artists and directed by Genesis Award winner Lucy J Skilbeck.

Established by John Studzinski 15 years ago, the Genesis Foundation works in partnership with the leaders of prestigious UK arts organisations such as the Royal Court, The Sixteen, Welsh National Opera and the Young Vic. Its largest funding commitment is to programmes that support directors, playwrights and musicians in the early stages of their professional lives.
In addition it awards scholarships to exceptional student actors at LAMDA and commissions stimulating new works, from choral compositions to light installations.
In 2015 the Genesis Foundation launched its first partnership outside the UK, funding residencies for playwrights at New York’s Signature Theatre.
