"Anton Chekhov" with Emily Dzioba
Play • 52 min

In 19th century Russia, there were many writers. But only one would be known for changing two genres of the page and stage forever. The grandson of a serf, a doctor who treated cholera patients for free, and a playwright who wouldn’t find success with his theatrical work until late in his life, Anton Chekhov was a force to be reckoned with. This week, listen to producer Emily Dzioba with host Talia Smith transform into their true theatre-kid selves while discussing the works of Anton Chekhov!
