Love in a nutshell
Performed in Russian with English subtitles.
Friday 20th May (7:30pm) and Saturday 21st May (3:00pm and 7:30pm) at The Cockpit.
The show is a stage adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s selected short stories exploring love and relationships between people.
Outside Russia Chekhov is mostly known for his full-length plays, but his ironic, visceral, hilarious and sad short stories also offer incredible source of material for theatre. Alongside with famous stories such as “The Proposal”, Xameleon’s cast will present London’s audience with Chekhov’s less known work such as “A Daughter of Albion” and “The Witch”. In our show, recognisable and timeless sketches of everyday life from the pen of one of the most loved Russian playwrights came together in a humorous and at the same time touching performance.
