Coming Together for "Neva"
“After seeing the play we decided on the spot to work together,” says South Coast Repertory’s Artistic Director Marc Masterson.
Calderón’s Neva tells the story of Anton Chekhov’s widow, Olga Knipper, and two fellow actors, huddled in a dimly lit rehearsal room while a revolution happens in the streets outside. Inside, the actors rehearse and recreate scenes from their own lives and try to find the meaning of art in turbulent times.
“Neva is bold, theatrical, funny and fierce—a unique evening of theatre,” says Masterson. ”By joining forces we are able to bring this exciting new work to audiences throughout Southern California.”
