Mercurius presents Anton Chekhov's Vaudevilles and other sketches, translated and adapted by Michael Frayn, at the Jermyn Street Theatre, an Off West End venue in Piccadilly, central London, from 24 to 29 June 2013.

Directed by Jenny Eastop, lighting by Helen Williams, cast includes Tom Barratt, Jeremy Booth, Tara Dowd, Ben Higgins, Oliver Lavery, Alexandra Ryall..

A collection of the comic vaudeville sketches that Chekhov wrote for satirical magazines and revues: A famous writer driven to desperate acts by an over zealous fan, tricks with mustard played on faithful retainers, a widow's mourning quickly overturned, the pomposity of an Inspector General deflated by a cart driver, a proposal breaking into a furious argument at every turn, and a husband never quite managing to give the speech he's been told to...

Looking for the best seats...
