VANYA ON THE PLAINS, a Chekhovian tragicomedy by Jason Hedrick, Director of the O’Neil Theatre and Instructor of Theatre and Speech at John A. Logan College in Carterville, IL. Hedrick’s play imagines a future totalitarian society in which in-person human interaction is greatly diminished and daily life experiences are detached from reality in favor of digital virtual reality experiences. The “plains” of the title is a barren land only somewhat more livable than the neighboring sector, the Outlands. In an attempt to acquaint his family and friends with real-time and real-space personal interaction and genuine relationships, the 79-year old Elijah convinces them to perform Chekhov’s UNCLE VANYA despite the fact that the younger members of the family have never seen a play and have no conception of acting.
