What will people in 200 years say about us? Anything good? In collaboration with local musicians, Courtney Von Drehle (Three Leg Torso, Klezmocracy), Ralph Huntley (Livewire, Klezmocracy) and Andre Temkin (Chervona), PETE endeavors to reawaken Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya with a brand new translation by Štepán Šimek. Routine life in the country is upset by the arrival of the famous professor and his beautiful wife. Productive days have turned into lazy afternoons of flirting and raucous nights filled with drinking and political arguments, dramatic love triangles and bawdy brawls about the meaninglessness of life. All at the estate end up questioning their life’s purpose and meaning. Just like any family get together! PETE members Jacob Coleman and Amber Whitehall will be joined by Portland favorites Maureen Porter, Victor Mack, Joellen Sweeney, Lucy Paschall and Portland newcomer Prentice Onayemi.
