Anton in Show Business
by Jane Martin
directed by Jess Viator
produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
Three actresses with very different personalities and experiences are cast in a regional production of a classic Anton Chekhov play. The rehearsal process is plagued with hilarious complications, and through their shared ordeal they become as close as sisters. But will their hard work and suffering pay off?
