A Drum Theatre Plymouth production
“I don’t know who he is but he’s old, he’s got to know stuff…he’s got to be like wise and stuff yeah?”
Anton Chekhov, masterful playwright and mirror to Russian society, awakening from one hundred years of sleep, is thrust rudely into twenty first century Britain.
Reality shows, fashionistas, Z-list celebrities, illegal immigrants, chuggers and wags. Pole dancing, YouTube, Twitter and 5-a-day. Chekhov in Hell takes you on a whirlwind tour of modern day Britain.
Following his success with Grand Guignol, Simon Stokes directs Dan Rebellato’s bitter comedy.
Recommended for everyone aged 14+
