Gliding between comedy and tragedy, this classic from Anton Chekhov with successful cast puts a smile on your face at the end of the day.
i got this paragraph from Timeout Sydney's website where Cate Blanchett shares few words:
"I would hope that they've experienced deep sadness and absolute hilarity, and have fallen in and out of love with all the characters (often simultaneously!) in the course of the evening." As Chekhov wrote in one of his many short stories: "How strange... why does God give sweetness of nature, sad, nice, kind eyes, to weak, unhappy useless people - and why are they so attractive?"
