Swatantra Theatre has performed “An Evening With Chekhov” many times, that it needs little talking about. What is worthy of mention is the fact the play is a program to launch new faces to stage. Jawaharlal Nehru Auditorium is where the play is to take place. Also, the brilliant translation of the script is a treat to watch. Be it “Yashwant Nikose” “Drowned Man.” Swatantra Theatre is quite adept and immaculate in bringing such scripts to life. Be it Premchand, Ruskin Bond or R. K. Laxman stories.The playwright himself wont go out of date. Every new performance brings something new to the “existence” of the ageless script. Russians are here to stay!I would like if the theatre group also picked up other contemporary Russian writers like Maxim Gorky or Leo Tolstoy. Leo Tolstoy’s stories too are full of wisdom and a message.
