Chekhov's character study of a man undone by his own spiritual malaise, in a brilliant translation by a world-renowned team of translators.

Nikolai Ivanov, approaching middle-age, has lost all passion for life. No longer in love with his wife, riddled with debt, and in danger of losing his estate, Ivanov finds himself trapped in a stasis he cannot shake, dragging all of those in his orbit down with him. While his family and friends rally around him trying to help, Ivanov only seems to sink further into the darkness that threatens to consume him.

This translation, in Theatre Communications Group's Classic Russian Drama series, is by renowned playwright Richard Nelson, together with Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, the foremost contemporary translators of classic Russian literature.
