During the Russian Revolution, Maria Chekhov, Anton's sister, placed many of her late brother's manuscripts in a safety deposit box in Moscow. In 1921, Soviet scholars opened the box, and discovered a play. The title page was missing. The play they found has too many characters, too many themes, too much action. It's generally dismissed as unstageable. Like life.
