In Robert Seale’s re-imagining of Jane Martin’s Anton in Show Business, three women pursue every Canadian actor’s dream: performing Chekhov in Annapolis-Royal, Nova Scotia.

Winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Steinberg New Play Award, this madcap “back-stage” comedy follows them through a myriad of "good ideas" that offer unique solutions to the Three Sister's need to have life's deeper purpose revealed. Through joy, pain and absurdity, they explore the conflicts between art and “show biz,” and address how Canadian theatre is increasingly removed from the real business of telling stories, live.
