"Chekhov writes about good people behaving badly..."  Director Susan Coyne and actor Rena Polley talk about the complicated, messy and unresolved characters in The Grasshopper...and how hope is the buoyant element that keeps them going.  

The Grasshopper 

    by Anton Chekhov

 

Dymov, a doctor, is a simple man of science. His new bride, Olga Ivanovna, loves beauty, excitement and gaiety.

 

At first their life together is blissfully happy. He loves her for her artistic nature. She loves his kindness and good sense. 

 

But when a handsome and famous artist takes Olga under his wing, things begin to unravel.
