The Mechanicals Repertory Company are back with 3 plays written by Anton Chekhov.  It is a great pleasure to be in their company again as I began my photography career with them almost exactly four years ago.

The Chekhov season began last night with a deconstructed, modernised and shortened Afrikaans version of  The Cherry Orchard: Die Kersieboord, directed by Sandra Temmingh. A play that despite being written over a century ago, draws many parallels with our lives in South Africa today.
