Radio play: Anton Chekhov's 'The Safety Match'
Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre. In this episode, we bring you a tale by the famous Russian author Anton Chekhov. While Chekhov wrote many plays, this Maplewood Barn audio presentation is based on a short story called "The Safety Match."
Although it is a mystery, there are overtones of comedy throughout the story, which is typical of Chekhov's writing.
