During a night-long vigil preceding the funeral of their brother Kostia, Anton and Aleksander Chekhov are drawn into an agonising and explosive confrontation with each other - and with deeply hidden aspects of themselves. As the play unfolds, it becomes a portrayal of human misery and the redemptive power of the creative impulse.
