About: Chekhovís First Play

8pm

Part of Phoenix Season

ĎIím having absolutely nothing to do with the theatre or the human race. They can all go to hell.í Anton Chekhov

During the turmoil of the Russian Revolution in 1917, Maria Chekhov, Antonís sister, placed many of her late brotherís 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, itís generally dismissed as unstageable. Like life.

Dead Centreís deconstructed and absurd take on Chekhovís First Play explores the essence of Chekhov and of performance itself.

Running Time: 75 mins
Age Recommendation: 12+
