by William Boyd
Part of the Modern Plays series
All things pass - is this your philosophy? Is there no room for love in your philosophy of life?
Renowned and best-selling novelist William Boyd, CBE, adapts two Chekhov short stories, A Visit to Friends and My Life, to weave a comic tale about nineteenth-century Russian provincial life, both familiar and unfamiliar.
When Kolia is invited to visit his oldest friends on their Estate in the country he anticipates a pleasant break from Moscow life.
But as the comedy of provincial life plays out around him, he finds himself adrift in a miasma of false expectations, missed opportunities, and unspoken passions.
