Encore: Chekhov comedy shorts

The Bear and The Proposal, two of Chekhov’s one-act comedies, will be delighting audiences here at the launch of Encore Theatre Club’s touring season to raise funds for future productions.

“Anton Chekhov is better known for his serious work but these one-act domestic comedies exploit the lunacy and hypocrisy of human foibles in a wild and hilarious manner , somehow unexpected from the 19th century Russian steppes. The plays explore the conflicts stirred up by greed and sexuality in the pre-revolution rural Russia where everyone is expected to behave very properly, but few actually do!” says Encore’s John Haylock.
