Presents the four greatest plays by the influential Russian author. The seagull: Constantine Treplev, son of the renowned, self-centered actress Irina Arkadina, dreams of bringing new forms to the theatre, while Nina, the girl he loves, is tempted by the charm of Trigorin, a famous writer. Uncle Vanya: Serebrakov, a retired professor--pompous, vain, and irritable--returns to his estate to live with his young second wife Yelena. The professor's brother, Vanya, and his doctor, Astrov, both find themselves falling in love with Yelena, while the professor's daughter Sonya is in love with Astrov. Three sisters: The three sisters Olga, Masha, and Irina live with their older brother Andrei in a small Russian town, to which they moved eleven years ago. Overeducated and out of place in this little town, they dream constantly of returning to Moscow. The cherry orchard: Madame Ranevsky is faced with the necessity of selling the dear old family estate for debts to a merchant who plans to cut down the orchard and turn it into suburban lots.
