Ivanov

Large Cast Male, 4 Female

Anton Chekhov adapted David Hare Price: $14.95

This is a drama of a Russian landowner's half-farcical, half serious personal crisis as he plummets fast into domestic and philosophical chaos

The central scene concerns a debate between the landowner and the young doctor about honesty. The latter thinks that honesty is to do with blurting out offensive truths, whilst the former insists that no-one can acquire honesty unless they have the self knowledge to examine their own motives

By turns despairing and passionate, this play offers an insight into a robust young writer, exploring themes that were to interest him in his later plays
