Sadly, with his production of “Uncle Vanya,” despite felicities in the casting, lightning […]

First Nighter: Brian Friel's "Afterplay," Horton Foote's "The Roads to Home," Jonathan Rockefeller's "That Golden Girls Show!"

Contemporary playwrights influenced by Anton Chekhov outnumber those who haven't been--and by overwhelming numbers. Most of them leave implicit their debt to the master. For instance, British playwright N. C. Hunter, whose A Day by the Sea is currently being smartly revived at the Mint. Brian Friel took a more direct approach in 2002 with Afterplay, just revived at the Irish Repertory. (Don't confuse this Afterplay with Anne Meara's After-Play, which is her homage to influencer J. B. Priestle...
