You interest me strangely, this sounds like one of the most bathos-laden updatings yet - so the prospect of being stuck in some provincial Russian town a thousand miles from Moscow at the turn of the 20th century is equated with being in the Isle of Man in 2012 ? (I assume that must be the date as there is also a computer in the staging and I believe they only reached Douglas in January of this year). Any indication of why they can't just book a Super Saver on Manx Ferries and go to London if they are so drawn to it ? How do they establish that the Isle of Man is the setting ? - let me guess - at the beginning there is a big ship's horn sound and an announcment "Ladies and Gentlemen we will soon be arriving in the port of Douglas, please ensure you have collected all your belongings ...".
So many questions, so little time.

My issue is that the updating and relocating are so half-hearted. If you're going to make these changes then really do it. Change the characters' names - in the context of this production the Russians make no sense.

But only from old sourpuss herself - doesn't count.
