Ivanov - Young Chekhov Season
Kde Olivier Theatre, National
Nikolai Ivanov is only 35, a radical and a romantic, but already he’s feeling that he’s thrown his life away. Determined not to become a small-town Hamlet, he hopes one last desperate romance may save him from a society rotten with anti-Semitism and drink.
This electric play is powered both by hilarious satire and passionate self-disgust. Adapted by David Hare whose stage plays include Skylight,Pravada and screenplays include The Hours and The Reader, directed by Jonathan Kent (Gypsy, Private Lives).
