Public Domain #3: Andrew Neisler directs Ivanough by Anton Chekhov
The Tank and Full Circle Theatre Company are producing a monthly staged reading series featuring plays in the public domain with no copyright restrictions. Once a play has entered public domain, it belongs to everyone. It becomes ours to do with as we please. As such, we thought it'd be cool if we offered up some of the creative decision-making to our audiences. We've selected our first seven plays, and seven directors with very different approaches. We had our audiences assign a play to each director.

In 1887, Anton Chekhov was commissioned to write a four-act comedy. Two months later, Ivanough  premiered in Moscow. In typical Chekhovian style, the play centers on a debt-ridden, Russian landowner whose wife contracts Tuberculosis. Instead of taking care of her, Nikolai Ivanough falls in love with the daughter of his moneylender. Hilarity ensues. Come witness how Chekhov masterfully evokes pity for his philandering hero.

Andrew Neisler is an Atlanta-raised, now Brooklyn-based theatre artist and director. Andrew has a strong belief in collaborative development and a conviction that an impassioned community is at the core of art and the process of making it. As a director, often using well-known and classic source texts, he seeks to find the narrative thread that runs deepest in the human condition. With a childlike imagination, and a sensibility for play, he strives to bring epic stories to life with an energetic innocence and personal freshness.
