Chekhov’s First Play

I’M HAVING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE THEATRE OR THE HUMAN RACE.  THEY CAN ALL GO TO HELL. – Anton Chekhov

During the turmoil of the Russian Revolution in 1917, Maria Chekhov, Anton’s sister, placed many of her late brother’s papers in a safety deposit box in Moscow. In 1921 Soviet scholars opened the box, and discovered a play. The title page was missing. It had too many characters, too many themes, too much action. All in all, it is generally dismissed as unstageable. Like life.
 
In 2015, Dead Centre premiered Chekhov’s First Play. After huge critical and popular acclaim, the show travelled throughout the world, from Berlin, to Sarajevo, Hong Kong and Helsinki. It now returns for the first time to Dublin in a limited run of 5 performances.
