Punctuating the final scene of The Cherry Orchard, Anton Chekhov wrote: “Suddenly a distant sound is heard, coming as if out of the sky, like the sound of a string snapping, slowly and sadly dying away.” That one sentence — one of the greatest stage directions in western theatre — has baffled sound designers for over a century. So Northern Light Theatre has decided to confront the mystery in its own characteristically audacious fashion.

In Mickle Maher’s THE HUNCHBACK VARIATIONS, the playwright has developed a deft deconstruction of artistic collaboration through the absurdist conceit of pairing two of history’s most famous deaf artists, Ludwig van Beethoven and Quasimodo, the fictional bell ringer of Notre Dame.
