Kate Burton (TV's "Scandal") returns to the Huntington for Chekhov's emotionally rich classic, directed by Huntington favorite Maria Aitken (The Cocktail Hour, Betrayal, and Private Lives). Celebrated actress Irina Arkadina's visit to her aspiring playwright son with her successful novelist lover in tow kindles unrequited passions and petty jealousies in Anton Chekhov's masterpiece about love, missed connections, and what it means to be an artist. Burton's son Morgan Ritchie, who appeared with her in The Corn is Green, plays Arkadina's son Konstantin.

"Maria is such a beloved member of the Huntington family and gifted interpreter of the classics, and she will undoubtedly coax incredible humor and pathos out of Chekhov's masterpiece."— Peter DuBois
