Anton Chekhov

"I don't like theatre. I can't stand the actors."

Written and performed by MICHAEL PENNINGTON

Michael Pennington’s celebrated Anton Chekhov takes the form of an evening spent in the company of the Russian writer towards the end of his life. In it he reminisces about his life, his times and work; he demonstrates his writing technique by telling stories, speaks about the theatre and engages deeply and humorously with his English audience.

Premiered at the National Theatre in 1984, Anton Chekhov has played all over the world. It was revived by the National and also seen at the Old Vic and at Chichester. It has been broadcast in two separate radio adaptations and been the subject of an Omnibus documentary on BBC television.
