Written in 1904, the year that Chekhov died, Maxim Gorky’s Summerfolk spotlights the hopes and anxieties of a cross-section of Russia’s new middle class as they congregate in their holiday dachas. Some are frightened by the prospect of change, some are angry and some yearn for a new life. Relationships break and scandals of business and infidelity are laid bare.
