This has shaped up to be a year when the Triangle theater community just won't let Anton Chekhov rest in peace. In May, Bartlett Theater trotted out Anya Reiss's 2012 adaptation of The Seagull, set in the present day, and gave it a vivid staging on the grounds of a country house near the Eno River.

Now Aggregate Theatre is getting in on the contemporizing act with this staged reading of Jonathan Fitts's Vanya in Los Feliz, billed as "a party play for hipsters and those who hate them."
