The Sneeze – Tue 4th to Sat 8th September
By Anton Chekhov
Translated and adapted by Michael Frayn
Apparently, Chekhov didn’t like plays – except short ones. So, we present a selection of his short plays (and sketches based on his short stories) freely adapted and translated by Michael Frayn. Perhaps best known for Noises Off, Michael Frayn’s lively translations bring out all the wit and dry humour of Chekhov at his funniest. Although the plays are set in late 19th century Russia, the emotions that drive the comedy are universal – anger, embarrassment, self-importance, disappointment, boredom, vanity, outrage, xenophobia – as a parade of larger-than-life characters find themselves in a series of ridiculous situations.
Trap for a Lonely Man – Mon 22nd to Sat 27th October
By Robert Thomas
Translated by Lucienne Hill and John Sutro.
The Man’s wife has disappeared. The Police cannot trace her. And then the Priest says he has found her, but the Man says she’s not his wife. Other people say she definitely is his wife. So what’s going on? Is this a conspiracy? Is the Man going mad? The tension mounts, right to the final climax!
