Volunteers are needed to help plant the grove, which will serve as a monument to Anton Chekhov, the Russian writer and physician. The planting is scheduled at 2 p.m. Friday at the southeast corner of the intersection of Belair Road and Parkside Drive in the park.

Barely 1 1/2 years after its first play in December 2002, Bay Theatre Company's fifth offering, Anton Chekhov's The Sneeze, establishes the company's reputation for superbly acted, high-quality plays. Co-founders Lucinda Merry-Browne and Janet Luby are adept at selecting small-cast plays that work well in the intimate theater space. Merry-Browne directs six of the seven Sneeze vignettes - with the title one directed by Jim Chance - and she plays supporting roles, while Luby is featured in three of the seven.

IS THE Republican Party dead? A number of recent stories in the press have suggested as much. You know, out of power, divided over social issues, no clear leader, no message -- those sorts of stories.How much of it is true? Well, this ailing party has elected a U.S. senator from Texas by a 2-to-1 vote. It has also captured the mayoralties of Los Angeles and Jersey City and most recently the lieutenant governorship of none other than Arkansas.What of the charge that divisions within Republican ranks, say between "mainstream" Republicans and the "religious right," will tear apart the coalition that elected Ronald Reagan twice and George Bush once?

The Stanislavsky Theater Studio might not sound like a Maryland troupe, but this young company is based in Silver Spring. Founded by theater professionals who immigrated to this country from the former Soviet Union, the company takes its name from the late Russian director, actor and teacher Konstantin Stanislavsky.Tomorrow, the Stanislavsky Theater makes its Baltimore debut with the first of two productions to be performed at the Theatre Project. "The Little Tragedies," a quartet of short pieces by Alexander Pushkin, will run weekend nights through April 11. On March 20, it will be joined by matinees of a double bill of "Kashtanka," an adaptation of an Anton Chekhov story about a dog, and "The Miraculous Magical Balloon," an original pantomime.

QUESTION: What do you call a test in which bureaucrats rework the prose of great writers? Answer: An abomination. That's just what you have on a test required of high school seniors by the New York State Regents. Students are asked to read and react to work by Annie Dillard, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Ernesto Galarza, Anton Chekhov and others. But it's not the work of these writers at all. Essential words have been changed and passages have been removed, leaving a new creation by anonymous sanitizers deployed to enforce sensitivity guidelines.

Movies Sylvester Stallone, below, has returned with the fifth in his ''Rocky'' series, and the good news is that "Rocky V" is better than the fourth chapter. The new film begins a bit slowly but builds with time and moves on to a conclusion as exciting as those in the other ''Rocky'' movies. This time out, Rocky -- his brain slightly scrambled -- wants to retire but a greedy promoter hopes to force him back into the ring. Violence, language. Rating: PG-13. ***Art/Linell SmithArtist Carole Jean Bertsch has assembled a series of mixed media works into an altar-like display which recall sepulchral tributes of many Mediterranean cemeteries: Photographs of the deceased laid to rest among wreaths of plastic flowers.
