Two years ago, Kathy Scambiatterra played mother to Julian Hester in Jean Cocteau's incestuous dark comedy Les Parents Terribles. They reunite for Cody Estle's staging of Anton Chekhov's tragicomedy, and once again there's something off-kilter in the dynamic—they also want to bone each other in this one. In Artistic Home's intimate black-box space, Hester overplays Chekhov's inherently satirical depiction of the hungry author Konstantin but all told, this capable ensemble offers a competent if perfunctory take on a classic play. —Dan Jakes
