Taliesin Live - In and Out of Chekhov’s Shorts
Dragonboy Productions presents
‘DON’T TELL ME THE MOON IS SHINING;
SHOW ME THE GLINT OF LIGHT ON BROKEN GLASS’ Anton Chekhov
Chekhov is one of the great writers of the 20th Century and these tales, newly adapted and directed by Eliot Giuralarocca and performed by a company of five, feature original live music and stylish ensemble story-telling. In and Out of Chekhov’s Shorts is an exhilarating, fun and accessible romp through some of the best of Chekhov’s short stories including The Lady with the Little Dog, The Chemist’s Wife, At a Summer Villa, An Avenger and The Bear.
These wonderful hymns to the absurdity of everyday life, are by turns hilarious, romantic, poignant, odd and memorable. They hold the mirror up to the half-comic, half-painful experience of love and relationships and create a world in which the tender and the grotesque are inextricably linked. Ludicrous situations and larger than life characters abound in an evening that simply cannot be missed!
