It is a unique glimpse behind the curtain of the laboratory of the new Russian theatre in the late twentieth century. Efros' articles about Chekhov and The Seagull, his diaries, interviews and conversations, and most importantly the original rehearsal records combine to form an in-depth account of the director and his working process. This is an essential book for anyone with an interest in Chekhov and the history of modern Russian theatre--back cover."@en ;
