Intimate Admiration by Richard Epp
This engaging two-hander traces the relationship of playwright Anton Chekhov and his wife, Olga Knipper, star of the Moscow Art Theatre, through joyous and turbulent times. In its portrayal of this remarkable pair, the play celebrates the world of the stage and its vital connection to audience.
After a brief test run at Theatre Calgary in February, 1986, it received enthusiastic applause at the Stratford Festival in the summer of 1987 with John Neville and Lucy Peacock in the roles. Revised 2017.
