This is a substantial, gently-moving play – 2 hrs 45 minutes – but in its meditation on life, attrition, middle-aged disappointment, family entanglements and memory it is as engrossing as Chekhov can be. But it is set nearer in time – 1953 – and closer to home: NC Hunter was a West End monarch in the age of Rattigan
Classic 1953 play by the English Chekhov is fascinating, but rather dated in its values and too clumsy in its production.
