Explore: Anton Chekhov & the Absurd is open in Kitely! 

The Dacha - Chekhov's Realm
The new world structure of Kitely also means that last year's  EXPLORE The Great Gatsby will also be available to guests. The Explore Estate will be open to all guests through May 15th.

The two main structures in this new Explore reflect the two influences in the play currently being produced by Tacoma Little Theatre Seanchai Library's real-world partner: Christopher Durang's "Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike"

The Farmhouse - the land of Christopher Durang and Absurdism

On one side of the lake is a Russian Dacha (country house), with information and links on Author and Dramatist Anton Chekhov, whose plays and characters inspired the play by Mr. Durang.  On the other side is a stone farm house, like one might find in Buck's County Pennsylvania, where Durang's play is set. In it are links and information on playwright Christopher Durang, his plays, and upstairs extensive information on Absurdism in both philosophy and literature.

Several reading events are currently scheduled, and Explore is available for tours.
