In Uncle Vanya, Chekhov warns us about vast deforestation and the destruction of the planet by its people. What in our natures prevents us from confronting a massive crisis for the planet and ourselves? Is the tsunami of unrequited love the result of emotional lives tortured by loss and ruled by ego? Is despair the cause of our surrender to the earth’s destruction? How might we lift it? Chekhov deliberately offers no answers, but the lives of those who inhabit this rural Russian estate embody the questions with exquisitely concrete detail.
