IVANOV by Anton Chekhov, in a new version by Tom Stoppard
Cast includes Kenneth Branagh
Director Michael Grandage
Once a man of limitless promise, Ivanov is plunged into debt. His marriage is in crisis, and his evenings are spent negotiating loans, avoiding love affairs and fighting to resist the small town jealousies and intrigues which threaten to engulf his life.
Kenneth Branagh plays the title role in Chekhov’s explosive portrait of a man plagued with self-doubt and despair, which vividly captures the electrifying atmosphere of Russia on the brink of change.
