        Breath By Breath

Breath By Breath

A play within a play: writer Anton Chekhov and female actor Olga Knipper's intimate relationship is set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century innovation in theatre and political persecution of Jews in Russia, which became indicative of major developments throughout the century. The consumptive Checkhov, who writes about love, confronts evidence of hatred. Breath By Breath is about different kinds of love; romantic love, love of family, love for theatre and art, and spiritual love for others. It asks - what is the artist's responsibility?
