BRIAN FRIEL’S AUDACIOUS TWO-HANDER, Afterplay (2002) takes two of Chekhov’s most celebrated characters – Sonya from Uncle Vanya and Andrey from Three Sisters – and brings them together in a Moscow cafe some 20 to 30 years after the events in the plays. In the spirit of Friel’s theatrical conceit, the festival has invited two actors who have themselves played Sonya and Andrey previously, Donna Dent (Uncle Vanya, Gate Theatre, 1998) and Richard Henders (Three Sisters, Chichester, 2001) , to re-engage with those characters. They meet after-hours in a Derry~Londonderry café to talk of life, love, and its disappointments.
