The first complete American translation of Chekhov's ten vaudevilles. The comedic one-act farces are: The Bear, The Proposal, On the Harmful Effects of Tobacco, The Night Before the Trial, On the High Road, The Wedding, The Anniversary, A Tragic Role, and Tatyana Repina. These are jewels for the stage -- ready to use for actors and directors, and for students of drama who wish to enrich their appreciation of the virtuosity and complexity of this great Russian playwright. Chekhov wrote these confections early in his career, before he tuned to his serious plays. All ten have been newly (and faithfully) translated and assembled in a unique collection here, to make them fresh and accessible for contemporary actors and audiences. An introduction is included for literary historical perspective, as well as a glossary and pronunciation guide for the actor's usage.
