"Ivanov" is Anton Chekhov's four-act drama, which was originally performed in 1887, however due to Chekhov's disgust for the performance he revised it to its current condition and it was preformed again in 1889. "Ivanov" is the story of its title character, Nikolai Ivanov, who is severely conflicted by the illness of his wife, his mounting debts and his own internal desires. A taut psychological drama, "Ivanov" with its tragic and dramatic climax is considered one of Chekhov's best plays.
