This Was The End

In Chekhov’s play, Uncle Vanya asks “What if I live to be 60?”.
This Was The End performs answer.

I’m working with 4 actors in their 60’s, to question how memory functions in the formation of the future. What can we do with our past? What can we make of it?

Text from Chekhov’s play and Proust’s Swann’s Way or what we can remember of it.
