This is an extremely funny performance based on Chekhov’s early short comic stories,which he wrote under the pseudonym Antosha Chekonte. In this production Maly Theatre has intentionally diverged from detailed scenography in order to establish a special atmosphere, where the actors are left one-on-one with the audience. The minimalistic stage design heightens the audience's understanding and enjoyment of the play. However, brilliant comic situations cannot hide even from an average playgoer, author’s slightly sad look who is visibly present at the performance himself.


Performance Director – Elena Olenina

Scenography – Marina Alimova

Assistant Director – Albina Goncharova



Premiere – March 22nd, 2016
