Burjesta Theatre Workshop – Ensemble Acting & Chekhov – Wed 15th June

We’ll be looking at Chekhov’s first full length play, Ivanov, set at the turn of the 20th century in Russia amidst the land-owners and bourgeoisie class in a condition of moral torpor. Chekhov’s writing allows for up to a dozen actors to work on a scene together, all done with great skill, something of a rarity with active members in a scene usually no more than three or four.

All welcome, beginner or experienced.


Tom Hiddleston (Lvov), Johnathan Battersby (Gavrila), Andrea Riseborough (Sasha), Kenneth Branagh (Ivanov), Gina McKee (Anna Petrovna), Kevin R McNally (Lebedev), Lorcan Cranitch (Borkin) and Sylvestra Le Touzel (Zinaida) during the curtain call on Press Night for Ivanov at Wyndham's Theatre, London, England on 17th September 2008.
