I Take Your Hand in Mine is a play suggested by the love letters of Anton Chekhov and Olga Knipper and traces the passionate relationship between the world famous dramatist and Russia’s leading actress.
The six-year correspondence 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.

directed by Dmitry Zhukovsky
