A Tragic Role
Tatyana Repina

These are jewels for the stage - ready to use for actors and directors, and for students of drama who wish to enrich their appreciation of the virtuosity and complexity of this great Russian playwright

Chekhov wrote these confections early in his career, before he tuned to his serious plays

An introduction is included for literary historical perspective, as well as a glossary and pronunciation guide for the actor's usage
