Abstract. The article reviews Chekhov’s plays ‘Uncle Vanya’, ‘Three Sisters’ and ‘The Cherry Orchard’, directed by A.Konchalovsky in Mossovet Theatre, as a trilogy, as theatre novel. The cross-cutting plots of the novel are analyzed in connection with some motives of the New Testament. The trilogy returns the dramatist Chekhov to Russian modern theatre as religious, orthodox writer, thereby showing an innovative approach by the director and actors to classic plays by Chekhov.
