Young Chekhov contains a trilogy of plays by the Russian writer Anton Chekhov, written as he emerged as the greatest playwright of the late nineteenth century. The three works, Platanov, Ivanov and The Seagull, in contemporary adaptations by David Hare, will be staged at the Chichester Festival Theatre in the summer of 2015.
A masterly triple bill... unforgettably charts Chekhov's progress from farce to melodrama to a new symphonic realism.
Consistently illuminating... [Platonov] emerges as no mere apprentice piece but a major work in its own right.
There's rather brilliant; brilliant; and landmark-brilliant. I have no hesitation whatsoever in assigning to the last category David Hare's inexhaustibly rich and game-changing adaptations of three of Chekhov's early plays.
