We have good news for all those who hate dull theater... Here is the proof that Chekhov can also make us howl with laughter without ever being boring for a single minute with two one-act comedies: The Bear and the Proposal ». Chekhov himself had named them as his “two jokes”.
Action ! Elena Popova (played by the lovely Garance Thenault) a lovely widow, retired from the world, since the death of her husband, lives as a recluse with her butler. A certain Smirnov appears and starts shaking up her monotone life with troubling revelation concerning her husband...
The “Proposal”, turns into a hilarious vaudeville domestic scene, signed Chekhov …
We adore: the very fluid acting technique of talented comedians and a very contemporary scenography. To go see quickly!
L’Ours et la demande en mariage, staged by Jean-Pierre Leroux. 1h. Representations on Wednesday and Friday at 9pm until Janaury 30th!
Seats starting at 10€ on augustetheatre.com
