For the next two weeks we’re going to focus on the plays and short stories of Anton Chekhov… because I love him! Working on adapting Three Sisters over the past year and a half with Olivia MacFadden Elliot and Lucy Blewett (two of my oldest theater friends from Royal Holloway) has given me a much deeper understanding and appreciation of his work. It has especially allowed me to catch glimpses of that wonderfully subtle and contextualized humor that is simmering under the surface of all his characters.
