'Ms Churchill is one of our best writers ... her play is brilliantly conceived with considerable wit to illuminate the underlying deep human seriousness of her theme' Bryan Robertson, Spectator.

Nora Helmer, wife to Torvald and mother of three children, appears to enjoy living the life of a pampered, indulged child. But as her economic dependence becomes brutally clear, Nora's acceptance of the status quo undergoes a profound change. To the horror of the bewildered Torvald, himself caught in the tight web of a conservative society which demands that he exert strict control, Nora comes to see that only possible true course of action is to leave the family home
The seagull by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Seagull, a spectacular failure on its first appearance, was the play that, on its second, established Anton Chekhov as an important and revolutionary dramatist. Here, amid 'the weariness of life in the country', the famous actress Arkadina presides over a household riven with desperate love, with dreams of success and dread of failure. It is her son, Konstantin, who one day shoots a seagull; it is the novelist, Trigorin, who will one day write the story of the seagull so casually killed; but it is Nina, 'the seagull' herself, whose life to come will rewrite the story. Tom Stoppard has made this English version for the Peter Hall Company at the Old Vic (Spring 1997), and has added an introduction which indicates some of the problems translators have faced since the first English language Seagull in 1909

Three sisters by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Uncle Vanya by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
So, what happens in Uncle Vanya? Not much; just life, played out over four acts. There are rich people, and there are people who work for the rich people, whom the rich people don't really care about. There is a gun fired in anger and desperation, but there aren't any bodies to carry off stage. There are men making fools of themselves over women. There are those who accept their fates and wait for their rewards in heaven, and there are others who don't care one way or another. Chekhov's play moves so languidly that, without a vibrant cast, an understanding director, and a lively translation, it stands the chance of passing under the radar of the average audience. The reworking of the script aims at accessibility, replacing the "outdated colloquialisms" and "brittle prose" of earlier translations
