Why Theatres Keep Coming Back To Chekhov
"Chekhov flatters everyone, thesps, play-goers, designers, producers. ... When director Peter Brook first saw Chekhov, he said it was like listening to a tape recorder that had been accidentally switched on during a family argument. To modern audiences, raised on reality TV and soap operas, this humdrum realism is in tune with our aesthetic expectations."
