INTRODUCING THE

TCG CLASSIC RUSSIAN

DRAMA SERIES

Experience the Russian dramatic canon, brought vividly to life in

new translations from the 21st century’s most celebrated Russian

translators and one of our finest playwrights. Renowned American

playwright Richard Nelson (

The Apple Family

plays) and the

foremost contemporary translators of classic Russian literature,

Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, together collaborate on

revelatory new translations of major works of Russian drama.

The Inspector A Comedy in Five Acts

NIKOLAI GOGOL

Translated by Richard Nelson,

Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

Called “the greatest play written in Russian”

by Vladimir Nabokov, Nikolai Gogol’s

immortal comedy is a pitch-perfect satire

of social corruption. This illuminating new

translation of Gogol’s biting masterpiece

marks the first entry in the TCG Classic

Russian Drama Series.

A Month in the Country A Comedy in Five Acts

IVAN TURGENEV

Translated by Richard Nelson,

Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

The simple life of a dutiful wife and

mother is upended when the arrival of

her son’s charming new tutor unleashes

a whirlwind of love, lust and jealousy.

Russian Drama Series.

The Cherry Orchard A Comedy in Four Acts

ANTON CHEKHOV

Translated by Richard Nelson,

Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

There are two versions of Chekhov’s

masterwork: the one staged by Konstantine

Stanislavski at the Moscow Art Theatre

in 1904, and the one Chekhov originally

envisioned. Now, for the first time, both

are available and published here in a single

volume. Shedding new light on this most

revered play, the translators reconstructed

the original pre-rehearsal script that

Chekhov first submitted. The result is

a major event in the publishing of

Chekhov’s canon.
