Chekhov's First Play

Chekhov's First Play


During the turmoil of the Russian Revolution in 1917, Maria Chekhov, Anton’s sister, placed many of her late brother’s manuscripts and papers in a safety deposit box in Moscow.

In 1921 Soviet scholars opened the box and discovered a play. The title page was missing. The play they found has too many characters, too many themes, too much action.

All in all, it’s generally dismissed as unstageable. Like life.

Award-winning Irish Theatre Company Dead Centre do injustice to a great playwright. Chekhov before he was Chekhov.

Duration: 1 hour 15mins with no interval
