Olen Cox (left), Danielle Jimenez (center, back) and Callison Vaughan (right, front) rehearse a scene from USAO’s upcoming production of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. The set design places the audience within inches of the stage. The play opens at 7:30 p.m. on March 9 in the Davis Hall Little Theater.

Chances are when most people hear the name, “Chekhov,” they are more likely to think of the helm navigator of the starship Enterprise before Russian theater.
