Chekhov is one of the great writers of the 20th Century and these tales, newly adapted and directed by Eliot Giuralarocca, remain as memorable and bracing as jumping into a cold plunge pool after a hot sauna.
Performed by a company of five and featuring original live music and stylish ensemble story-telling, In and Out of Chekhov’s Shorts is an exhilarating, fun and accessible romp through some of the best of Chekhov’s short stories, including The Lady with the Little Dog, The Chemist’s Wife, At a Summer Villa, An Avenger and The Bear.
These wonderful hymns to the absurdity of everyday life are hilarious, romantic, poignant, odd and memorable. Ludicrous situations and larger-than-life characters abound in an evening that simply cannot be missed.
