The Nina Variations explores a relationship cursed by unrequited and complicated love in 42 variations of how the love story of Nina and Treplev could have ended. Dietz pits these lovers’ vibrant wit and soaring passions against one another in a fast-paced tour de force of romantic entanglement.

Since its foundation in 2009, Brown Box Theatre Project has been producing quality theatre up and down the East Coast, including venues in Boston, New York, Maryland, and Delaware. This season marks the expansion of the company’s presence on the shore. The Nina Variations will be the first of three productions touring the area followed by the 3rd Annual Free Shakespeare at the Beach: A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a new work, Ashes, by British playwright, Ali Muriel.
