16 POSSIBLE GLIMPSES

“You think eternity cares whether you’re nine or ninety?”

The Abbey Theatre presents a new play in which the life and death of the elusive Chekhov is examined through the eyes of Marina Carr in a radical production directed by Wayne Jordan.
16 POSSIBLE GLIMPSES flashes through the life of Chekhov, the master story-teller, master playwright, doctor, lover, brother, son.

A kaleidoscope of dialogues and images – tea and vodka, petal-filled gardens, oceans of champagne, a black monk travelling through time – reveal a life in which eternity is the only thing worth talking about.

Featuring a distinct cast of 12 Irish actors, this dynamic new play is a poetic imagining of the life of a brilliant man.

16 POSSIBLE GLIMPSES is part of the Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival

wonderful, wonderful, wonderful --brilliantly acted and visually beautiful. Great lead actor in particular

I find this play one of the more imaginative plays I have seen recently. Which beautifully links Chekov’s life to his plays. I find the Guardian’s review badly written lacking in depth and substance and having missed the essence of the play.

Have your say
