A Marriage Proposal starts with the utmost poetic expressions and ends with a brawl and three swoons.
Playwright: Anton Chekhov
Music supervision: Giannis Kalatzopoulos
2 - On the Harmful Effects of Tobacco
A lecture On the Harmful Effects of Tobacco sheds light on numerous…relevant issues (from how to make pancakes to the dress color which the speaker’s sister-in- law wears on Sundays) thus revealing the unfathomable depth of the soul of a “happily” married man.
Playwright: Anton Chekhov
Music supervision: Giannis Kalatzopoulos
3 - The Bear
The serene mourning of a young widow violently shakes the indebted household of the departed in the form of a Bear holding a gun.
