Script to accompany the world premiere of ’16 Possible Glimpses’ by Marina Carr

“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 POSSIBLEGLIMPSES 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.
