A Shakespearean takes Chekhov’s journey

In 1890, Anton Chekhov did a most un-Chekhovian thing: he battled 4,000 miles across Russia in order to conduct a survey of the penal colonies of Sakhalin Island. Actor Michael Pennington, who founded the English Shakespeare Company and has performed many memorable roles on stage and screen (including in films Return of the Jedi and The Iron Lady), brings that journey superbly – and shockingly – to life with a powerful one-man performance.
