Work type: Play.


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'.Company European Arts Company.

The Two Volodyas & Romance with a Double Bass - T2104184643

In The Two Volodyas our familiar Chekhovian heroine, Sofya, finds herself at a crossroads; married to her wealthy husband Volodya yet still in love with her childhood sweetheart; a younger more attractive Volodya. Whilst drinking more than perhaps a lady should, Sofya longs for an alternative to her two Volodyas. In Romance with a Double Bass, Pitsikatov is a young musician on his way to a Royal engagement. However, his journey soon takes a farcical turn, when he falls in love, loses his double bass and finds he only has a top hat to preserve his modesty.Company Lung Ha's Theatre Company.
