If Chekhov were alive today...

Anton Chekhov, playwright, author and pitiless observer of Russian society, awakes from a hundred-year coma and finds himself in twenty-first century London.

Bewildered and fascinated he takes a whirlwind tour of Britain from reality TV, smartphones, feng shui and sex trafficking to celebrity chefs, MTV Cribs, pole dancing and Twitter.

“I've read many new plays reflecting on the modern world, but nothing captured the humour and the tragedy like Chekhov in Hell, which seems completely appropriate since since Chekhov was the master of the tragi-comedy.” Says Director Eleanor Bishop. “Chekhov in Hell is by turns hilarious, fun and moving. I was drawn to the way it weaved a historical theatrical figure and all those associations into a biting satire of our world today.“

Featuring stunning design from Alice Hill (Tinderbox), daring projection (Andrew Simpson) and a fully-fledged original dance pop soundtrack by Chapman Tripp nominee Gareth Hobbs, Chekhov in Hell is a fast paced, funny, seriously fun night out!

Come view our world through the eyes of a literary master – the good, the bad and the ugly.

"A freewheeling yet pointed spin on the many ills, rampant absurdity and eroded values of modern life... Fast, funny, somethimes achingly hip" - The Times

Starring: Jason Whyte, Heather O'Carroll, Nick Dunbar, Victoria Abbott, Simon Leary

R16 - Contains strong language
