In the early years of the century, Russians of every social class were beginning to sense the onset of a great upheaval. Gorky's mighty naturalistic masterpiece shows us a diverse group of Russians meeting, as they do every year, at their summer holiday retreat. Some are frightened at the prospect of change, some are angry and some yearn for a new life. As they question the value of their work, their art and leisure, they're shocked by the responses their disputes reveal. Relationships break under the strain and scandals of business and infidelity are laid bare.Performers Roger Allam, Jasper Britton, Michael Bryant, Robert Burt, Martin Chamberlain, Oliver Cotton, Jim Creighton, Derbhie Crotty, Ceri Ann Gregory, Jack James, Gabrielle Jourdan, Beverley Klein, Leigh McDonald, Liam McKenna, Elizabeth Renihan, Simon Russell Beale, David Weston, Juliet Aubrey, Alessia Battista, Cathryn Bradshaw, Emily Cooper, Patricia Hodge, Henri McCarthy, Sean Mullin, Caroline Nicholls, Myra Sands, Philip Whitchurch.
