Tickets no longer available.

Three one-act plays performed within one hour – this is Chekhov as you have never seen it before!

We Are Animate presents some of the writer’s lesser-known works to a 21st century audience.


'The Dangers Of Tobacco’ – a man's fragile self-esteem is unpicked whilst giving a public lecture.

'The Proposal' – a hypochondriac attempts to woo a less than appealing maiden.

‘Swan Song’ – the tragic tale of an ageing actor as he comes to terms with the end of his career, and indeed, life.


“Absolutely entrancing… funny, engaging, poignant and utterly delightful” ***** (One4Review)

“A wonderful way of bringing Chekhov to modern audiences.” **** (Everything Theatre)
