Written in 1904, Maxim Gorky's Summerfolk focuses on the hopes and anxieties of a variety of the usual suspects: doctors and lawyers, writers and students, businessmen and servants, lovers and unhappy wives. At a garden party hosted by Varvara (Elysia White), arguments break out, alcohol is devoured, suicide is attempted, and nearly everyone laments their lives. Some are frightened by the prospect of change, some are angry and some yearn for a new life. Relationships are put to the test, infidelity is revealed and scandals abound.
