Theatre Production: "Before the Eclipse"

McKinley Bach Theatre

A small group of actors revels and rails at the comedy of life as they portray characters from some of Anton Chekhov's funniest short plays. From proposals to town meetings, from family squabbles to ceremonies and celebrations, these "jokes," as Chekhov called them, capture the foibles and frustrations of the modern world. In Laurence Senelick's precise, playable English translations, Chekhov's silliness--and his soft side for humanity--come through.
