Everyman Repertory Theater performs a comic collection of short plays written by Russian writer Anton Chekhov, adapted and translated by Michael Frayn. These lively, laugh-out-loud shorts celebrate the foibles and eccentricities of human nature. Written in the late 1800’s as farces, or “jokes,” The Bear, The Evils of Tobacco, and The Proposal feature a wide variety of recognizable characters who find themselves in the throes of absurd misunderstandings and intentions gone awry. Good fun for all ages!
This perforamce is in association with the Farnsworth Art Museum.
