The Nina Variations

by Steven Dietz


NuBox Theatre (2018)

Produced by Doghouse Ensemble Theatre

In this funny, fierce and heartbreaking homage to The Seagull, Steven Dietz puts Chekhov’s star-crossed lovers in a room and doesn’t let them out. In forty-three variations on their famous final scene, Nina (Alexandra Cockrell), a young actress, and Treplev (Michael Liebhauser), a young writer, pit their vibrant wit and soaring passions against one another in a fast-paced tour de force of romantic entanglement.


Alexandra Cockrell (Law and Order: SVU) and Michael Liebhauser.
