List of Plays by Anton Chekhov and Japanese Translations




A Chronological List of Plays by Anton Chekhov

 

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (Анто́н Па́влович Че́хов, 29 January 1860 – 15 July 1904)
 


Chekhov is one of greatest playwrights of modern times. He is known for his plays, often combining elements of both comedy and tragedy. While works reflect the frequently turbulent developments specific to his homeland, their lasting appeal lies in Chekhov's talent for exploring universally human situations with grace and dexterity.

[The sensational onstage suicide of Russian actress and opera singer Kadmina in 1881 led Alexei Suvorin to memorialize her in his 1888 four-act play Tatyana Repina. One year later, his friend Anton Chekhov, himself fascinated by Kadmina, sent Suvorin a one-act play, which was in fact a fifth act continuation of Tatyana Repina, with instructions to show it to no one.]
