This collection of three of Anton Chekhov´s most well-known and important plays is voiced by a sparkling cast and features music, SFX and a full soundscape. The Seagull Written in 1895 and a master class in the art and power of subtext, The Seagull follows the romantic and artistic conflicts between its four main characters, all dissatisfied with life. Some desire love. Some desire success. Some desire artistic genius. No one seems able to attain happiness. Tragic and often darkly comic, The Seagull is a timeless classic and an early exercise in addressing the pitfalls of depression and lack of satisfaction in life and purpose. Full cast: Samantha Bond, Catrin Stewart, Freddie Fox, Anthony Howell, Katherine Kingsley, John Rowe, Rachel Atkins, Hugh Ross, Nick Boulton, Stephen Critchlow. Three Sisters After the death of their father, his three daughters find it very hard to live in a drab Russian provincial town. The presence of a company of army officers is the only thing that makes their existence bearable, though inevitable drama, competition and failure lead to confusion and pain, as life doesn´t turn out quite to plan for the sisters. Full cast: Samatha Bond, Freddie Fox, Katherine Kingsley, Alison Pettitt, Catrin Stewart, Clare Corbett, Nick Boulton, Stephen Critchlow, Anthony Howell, Richard Reed, Hugh Ross, John Rowe. The Cherry Orchard In Chekhov´s last play, a widowed landowner returns home more or less insolvent after five years abroad. Everything appears just as she remembers it, but hers is a diminishing world. The vast and beautiful cherry orchard is soon to be sold off against her mounting debts. The insistent warnings of a peasant´s son turned wealthy businessman go unheeded, and more than the family estate is sacrificed.

´´An adventure, a mystery, and a love song to the natural world…Run out and listen to it. Right now.´´ (Newbery Medalist Karen Cushman) In the town of Placid, Wisconsin, in 1871, Georgie Burkhardt is known for two things: her uncanny aim with a rifle and her habit of speaking her mind plainly. But when Georgie blurts out something she shouldn´t, her older sister Agatha flees, running off with a pack of ´´pigeoners´´ trailing the passenger pigeon migration. And when the sheriff returns to town with an unidentifiable body - wearing Agatha´s blue-green ball gown - everyone assumes the worst…Except Georgie. Refusing to believe the facts that are laid down (and coffined) before her, Georgie sets out on a journey to find her sister. She will track every last clue and shred of evidence to bring Agatha home. Yet even with resolute determination and her trusty Springfield single-shot, Georgie is not prepared for what she faces on the western frontier. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Tara Sands.
