“Sweet Lika” Audio Drama

Lika Mizinova and Anton Chekhov

Sweet Lika is a fully produced, two-act audio drama that I’ve just posted to sergegregory.com. It originally premiered in 2017 as a staged reading at ACT Theater in Seattle as part of The Great Soul of Russia series performed by members of The Seagull Project ensemble.

The play is based on the letters of Anton Chekhov and Lidia (Lika) Mizinova. They wrote to each other for over ten years starting when he was 29 and she was 21. Their correspondence is a lovers’ duel, a parrying and thrusting in which Chekhov uses humor as a defense against intimacy and Lika plays along, hoping to penetrate his inscrutable heart.

Each act is one-half hour long and can be played on any device. It’s also possible to download the files for later listening. I hope you enjoy it, and, if you do, be sure to let others know about it.
