A Marriage Proposal

The Ellice Theatre, January 28 to February 1, 2014
Artwork for A Marriage Proposal

WITH OPENING ACT: "A Tragedian in Spite of Himself"!

Love, marriage, and ... palpitations of the heart!?

Tensions build (and so do the physical ailments!) as a stubborn suitor, a headstrong young lady, and one poor parent of the would-be bride clash comically in Chekhov's famous one-act romantic farce!

Will she ever say yes? Will he ever be able to ask?

This will be the happy union of the irresistible object and the immovable force – if they manage not to kill one another first!

Part of the ChekhovFest 2014 Master Playwright Festival.

"Get married! Quick! Kiss each other, and the devil take you both!"
— Tschubukov
