Anton explores playwright Anton Chekhov's search for love and happiness through his work and his relationships. The play, while based on actual events, also employs scientific research in child development to tell the story of the life of Anton Chekhov and the family tensions that inspired his work and his well-known characters. Anton chronicles the last four years of Chekhov's life as he moves from ecstatic lover to frustrated husband to disappointed father and finally to a man facing his own mortality. The play examines the role of intellect and culture to affect man's ability to change and find happiness in everyday life. Pierre Van Der Spuy directs.
