Chekhov's First Play, Paperback Book

Chekhov's First Play Paperback


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. A new play by Dead Centre, creators of the OBIE / Fringe First winning LIPPY.
