Art imitates life in Chekhov’s tale of parasitic creatives, and on opening night in Regent’s Park, the reverse also came to pass when a resident moorhen waddled over to greet the dead seagull. It’s a compliment to Matthew Dunster, who fully embeds the Russian tale in our north London park, while Torben Betts’s sparky free adaptation gives the 120-year-old work an effortlessly contemporary feel.
