European Arts Company returns with a hugely entertaining collection of classic one-act farces by Anton Chekhov, including The Evils of Tobacco, The Dimwit, The Bear, Swan Song and The Proposal. This is Chekhov as you’ve never seen him before – funny! Originally performed in Russian vaudeville theatres, these bittersweet plays are Chekhov at his comic best - before The Seagull got stuffed, Uncle Vanya fired blanks, The Three Sisters started moaning and The Cherry Orchard was ‘car-parked’.
“Chekhov wasn't all doom and gloom! European Arts Company’s production of Chekhov Shorts is fast-paced, witty and engaging” - The Stage ****
Running time: approx 2 hours including interval
