It’s the 7th Annual Chekhov Fete for Chekhov’s 157th birthday and it’ll be bigger and better than ever. This year we’re celebrating Chekhov’s subversive politics and in honor of 2017, we’ll share his tips for survival under a tsarist regime.

If you’ve come to past year’s events, you know you don’t want to miss Sam Underwood as the Violent-Tempered Man or Valorie Curry as The Baroness and FTP company members in roles with unpronounceable names. Alissa Quart will premiere Sakhalin-inspired poetry. Russian music troupe Bobok will teach you to sing the Russian “Happy Birthday” song, the saddest in any language. And, as always, the vodka will flow and the pirochki’s will stick to your gums.

We’re lining up additional and spectacular musical and theatrical guests so stay tuned for updates.

Sponsored by Columbia University’s Harriman Institute and FTP and produced by Harriman’s Visiting Chekhov Scholar (and FTP Creative Consultant) Laura Strausfeld.
