Chekhov in Hell

Dan Rebellato

PaperBack (04 Nov 2010)

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.

"A sharply satirical play… Knowing something about Chekhov and his work adds a layer of poignancy to proceedings, but even if you’ve never heard of the playwright there is much to enjoy as he plunges into a London peopled by sex traffickers, cynical fashionistas, bamboozling feng shui experts, survivor self-help groups spouting therapy-speak and restaurants serving food that doesn’t look or taste like anything your gran would recognise." - Lyn Gardner, Guardian

“A bittersweet piece blending the famous Russian writer’s history and works with a wry treatise on fickle 21st century Britain. Interesting, frustrating, quirky and funny.” – Karen Bussell, What’s On Stage
