The Chekhov Collective
Playwright(s): Carol Rocamora
Richard Sheridan Willis
I TAKE YOUR HAND IN MINE... is a play suggested by the love letters of Anton Chekhov and Olga Knipper and traces the passionate relationship between the world famous dramatist and Russia’s leading actress. The six-year correspondence spans the birth of the Moscow Art Theatre and Chekhov’s four major plays. Embedded into the everyday are gems of theatre history and insights into Chekhov’s creative process revealing a real life drama that is as tempestuous and spontaneous as any Chekhov play.
I found them mesmerizing, these two! … both of them humorous and playful to the end in the face of adversity… A must see for Chekhov enthusiast.
Together we fall in love with them … we are within the tragicomedy human spirit, the spirit so much requested and desired by Chekhov.
