About This Show

During Chekhov’s lifetime, his “comic sketches” were the most beloved and attended of his plays, and the characters – a henpecked husband, an actress past her prime, a self-important bureaucrat, a couple about to kill each other until they recognize they are in love – are drawn with as much understanding and complexity as his longer dramas. The Chekhov One-Acts consists of the plays: “The Celebration,” “Swan Song,” “The Harmfulness of Tobacco,” and “The Brute.”

Tea and cookies are served at intermission in the adjacent dining room and outside on the stone terrance.
