Ivanov was the last full-length Chekhov play I had yet to see, and I finally had my chance when the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama produced the play in December. Adapted by David Hare, the play was directed by Dominic Rouse and performed in the RCSSD’s Webber Douglas Studio.

As with the last play I saw in this space, the performances were superb. Peter Rugman was excellent as the melancholy Ivanov, and I particularly liked Willem Dalby as Borkin. The cast as a whole really brought the play to life, capturing the tragicomic nature of Chekhov’s work.
