A Winter People
Written and Directed by Chay Yew
August 14 - September 19, 2004

A brilliant adaptation of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, Chay Yew's A Winter People is sexy, lyrical and longing, and cleverly folds in pieces of other Chekhov masterworks to present a haunting portrait of a family in transition.

“An exquisite example of how the classics can be radically adapted and yet sound as if written by the original author.”   -European Cultural Review

“A visually elegant panorama.”   -LA Weekly

“A fine production that takes a familiar work and places it into a new setting that makes a classic artistic work as fresh and moving as intended.”   -Accessibly Live Off-Line

“Brilliant…even more thought provoking [than Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard] with its modern themes, and it differs just enough to make it original and a must see.”   -Center Stage

Remarkable…a lovely, beautifully realized updating of Chekhov’s greatest masterpiece…under Yew’s visionary direction, A Winter People is sumptuously produced, breathtakingly rendered.”   -Entertainment Today
