I Take Your Hand in Mine ...
Written by: Carol Rocamora
Directed by: Dmitry Zhukovsky
Cast: Rena Polley, Richard Sheridan Willis
Suggested by the love letters of Anton Chekhov and Olga Knipper, I Take Your Hand in Mine ... traces the passionate relationship between the world famous dramatist and Russia’s leading actress. Embedded into the everyday are gems of theatre history and insights into Chekhov’s creative process as well as revealing a real life drama that is as tempestuous, teasing and spontaneous as any Chekhov play.
Presented in association with Theatrus.
*This is a Canadian Actors’ Equity Association production under the Artists’ Collective Policy.
From Page to Stage
The Grasshopper by Anton Chekhov is the second presentation in our series of Page to Stage Theatrical Readings of literary works.
The Grasshopper is considered one of Chekhov's most autobiographical works and caused a scandal in Moscow's literary and art world when it was published.
