"The Chilean-born writer and director Guillermo Calderón is an authentic genius of the theater . . . you can't say you've heard or seen any of it before, which may make you want to hear and see it again." —New Yorker
"Neva's neobrutalist punch demonstrates . . . the enduring power of art." —Time Out New York
This politically charged, haunting and humorous play tells the story of three actors, including Anton Chekhov's widow, who gather to rehearse scenes from The Cherry Orchard as Russia faces an impending revolution. A savage examination of the relationship between theater and historical context, Neva received its English-language premiere at The Public Theater in New York, directed by the author.
Neva is the first bilingual text published by TCG Books, with both the English and Spanish versions of the play included in this book.
