Summer 1897. The Establishment is being challenged by new talent, but like all revolutions, things aren’t necessarily going to plan. Chekhov in Moscow is a comic celebration of the great writer’s life, work and famous wit. Expect battles with authority, troublesome actors, self-doubt and deadlines in this new comedy from Mike Carter. Join Oddservants theatre company (The Trunk, Buster Keaton at the Hollywood Canteen) as they seamlessly combine Chekhov’s short Vauderville plays, monologues and published letters to recreate a moment in time that, perhaps, changed theatre forever. A playful reminder that, whoever we are destined to become, finding a voice is always a hard-fought, and often ridiculous, struggle against the odds.
