The famous knock on Chekhov is that nothing happens. People talk. Time passes. Parson and Lazar amplify this sense of everyday ennui to great effect. The actors here engage in their craft without any sense of artifice. At some points the ensemble simply sits around a table, staring at a computer and chatting and one is never entirely certain if it’s part of the narrative or a commentary about theatrical convention. Certainly it’s a postmodern approach that reminds us of the illusions of theater. There is no pretext of suspending disbelief.
