Front Cover
0 Reviews
Chekhov's plays have become the most popular ones in Britain next to Shakespeare's. This is the first book to consider this phenomenon from its beginnings in 1909 to the present. It embodies the facts of Chekhov's progress on the British stage, which involves such giants of twentieth-century theater as Komisarjevsky, Bernard Shaw, Peggy Ashcroft and John Gielgud, but it also examines the highly contentious issues of directing, acting and translating Chekhov in Britain today. It is a book intended for those interested in the living British theater.
