  • Chekhov on the small screen Nov 15, 2010 - 5:00 pm
  • How best to celebrate Chekhov's 150th anniversary?

    Sky Arts 2 have chosen to mark the occasion with "chekhov: comedy shorts" - four one-act plays transposed to the small screen, with a cast of well-known comedians including Johnny Vegas and Steve Coogan. But do they make good television?
