Event description

Description

Under the direction of Elena Solovey, TESTO Theater presents two comedies by Anton Chekhov: 'A Marriage Proposal' and 'The Bear.'

One of Russia's greatest writers, Chekhov began his career writing anecdotes for popular magazines to support himself while he studied to become a doctor. Between 1888 and his death he single-handedly revolutionized both the drama and the short story.

'A Marriage Proposal' is a popular short farce that is among the funniest ever written. The plot revolves around the efforts of a nervous and excitable man's attempt to propose to an attractive young woman. Due to a tremendous quarrel over a boundary line, his efforts are deterred.

'The Bear' comedy derives from the characters' lack of self-knowledge. The widow Popova fancies herself inconsolably bereaved, while Smirnov considers himself a misogynist. They both pretend to be more than they actually are.

Both plays will be performed in Russian.


Ticket price: $10 online and $15 at the door.
