Adventures in the Cherry Orchard: Anton Chekhov and me

York Explore
January 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm £5
Why is Anton Chekhov so beloved and called “the father of the modern theatre”? Helen Wilson of York Settlement Community Players will explain why through anecdotes and a little biography; casting a light on why he called his plays comedies.

Come and toast Chekhov’s 160th birthday with a glass of vodka or wine. Be entertained by extracts of his work from the cast of The Seagull (27th February – 7th March at York Theatre Royal). As she directs the fourth of his major plays Helen shares her enthusiasm for a great Russian dramatist.
