Southwell Theatre Club presents The Proposal & The Bear 13th to 15th October 2022
October 13 - October 15
Two one-act plays ‘The Bear’ and ‘The Proposal’ by Anton Chekhov, are to be performed by Southwell Theatre Club at Southwell Library, King Street, Southwell, NG25 0EH, 7.30pm on Thursday 13th October, Friday 14th October and Saturday 15th October.
The plays, halted during rehearsal at the time of lockdown, two and a half years ago, are directed by Richard O’Malia.
Chekhov lived his life mostly under the Tsarist rule of the Romanov dynasty. His comedic one-act plays ‘The Bear’ and ‘The Proposal’, set in the 1800’s, reflect rural society at that time. Chekhov trained as a doctor, and died of tuberculosis aged 44, leaving a literary legacy of plays, such as ‘The Cherry Orchard’, ‘Three Sisters’, ‘Uncle Vanya’, and 500 short stories behind him.
Doors and bar open at 7pm; show starts 7.30pm. Tickets priced £10 each, in person from Southwell Library, telephone 01636 812148, or online at www.ticketsource.co.uk.southwelltheatreclub For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
