Pete is a suburban high school boy who articulates his every painful existential musing. He finds no comfort from his violence-obsessed friend, Lionel, or from his many teachers who offer obscure, jargon-filled lectures on the meaning of life. After vowing to quit high school, Pete is abducted by a beautiful woman, Masha from Chekhov's The Three Sisters. She and her sister Olga force Pete to play Irina in their version of the play. Pete returns to high school with renewed purpose, to lead his teachers and classmates in a joyous Russian dance.

Published Reviews

"In the loonily obstreperous To Moscow!, by Jeanmarie Williams, a modern-day Holden Caulfield is kidnapped by two madwomen, Masha and Olga, who force him to play Irina in their fantasy production of Chekhov's The Three Sisters. The material always surprises."
