I Take Your Hand In Mine

By Carol Rocamora

A play based on the love letters of Anton Chekhov and Olga Knipper

Directed by Benedicta Bertau

This is the love story between two exceptional people: Anton Chekhov, famous playwright and lover of humanity, and Olga Knipper, founding member and leading lady for the world-famous Moscow Art Theatre.

Olga and Anton knew each other for six years, the last three of which they were married, until his death in 1904.

During the short time they knew each other, Olga and Anton wrote over 400 letters to each other. Here is their story, in their own words.
