Written by Anton Chekhov, Adapted by Animate, and directed by Sam Coulson.

Three one act plays, 3 actors, 1 hour - this is Chekhov as you’ve never seen before. Bitesize Chekhov brings to life some of the great writers lesser-known works to a modern audience. Guaranteed to excite and delight both novices and connoisseurs alike, Animate breathes fresh life into these classical texts, demystifying one of the theatre’s greatest ever playwrights.

'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.

We do not accept Amex.
