In this lavish world premiere comedy, we discover what every Broadway star already knows – that the real drama on stage happens when the curtain is down. It is the late 1930s, and Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, the two most revered stars of the Broadway stage, have decided to perform Chekhov's masterpiece The Sea Gull. But first they must retreat to ‘investigate' the play at Ten Chimneys, their legendary Wisconsin estate, where they are surrounded by actors, family and hangers-on. When a young actress named Uta Hagen arrives, a romantic triangle begins to mirror the events in Chekhov's play about passion and art. The result is a funny, poignant and revealing look at the private lives of great artists who never really leave the stage. Ten Chimneys is a world premiere by Jeffrey Hatcher, award-winning author of ATC's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Ella and Tuesdays with Morrie.
