Designed to be performed as a reading, this wonderful play presents the relationship between the playwright, Anton Chekhov, and the actress, Olga Knipper. From their meeting at a rehearsal of Chekhov’s Seagull, through their love affair and marriage, to his death five years later, we witness their six-year courtship and marriage brought vividly to life.

Lovingly and sensitively crafted from the many letters which connected the couple, I Take Your Hand in Mine reveals with authenticity and passion their literary and theatrical careers, as well as their trying domestic life.
