You can read more about it (but may not want to) in the Donmar thread.

Inconsistencies with the setting (and karaoke, iPhones etc) aside, I thought this was actually a very faithful, lucid 'version' of the play - much more so than Benedict Andrews' Young Vic production.  Emily Taafe is astonishing as Masha, Paul McGann heroic and tragic as Vershinin.  The dynamics are all there and all right.  But I agree the re-location is problematic, even though it really isn't very distracting.  Much better than The Seagull, for me, but I don't think Russell Bolam is a director to write home about.

Thank you, steveatplays, for yet another thorough, intelligent, insightful and interesting review.  I wish I had your way with words.
