Once the pioneer of scientifi c farming methods and of education for the peasants, he now drowns in bureaucracy and debt, his large estate neglected.

Set in a country suffering from political, ideological and spiritual stagnation, Chekhov's fi rst full-length play anticipates the explosive revolutionary atmosphere of Russia at the turn of the century.
