Chekhov Richard-and-Rena1

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.

The six-yeacorrespondence spans the birth of the Moscow Art Theatre and the production of Chekhov’s four major plays. 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. 

I Take Your Hand in Mine is a co-production between Toronto’s The Chekhov Collective  a company founded by Rena Polley to explore the works of Anton Chekhov and the acting technique of his nephew Michael Chekhov, and Theatrus  a performance art company created by recent Russian émigrées Dmitry Zhukovsky and Yulia Rubina.
