Can there be a story about ordinary people? Would anyone be interested in the everyday trials, problems that are not very ‘literary’, foolish searches, or strange situations people find themselves in during their lives? Even though it seems insignificant, Anton Chekhov chose to focus on the mundane in all of his plays, leaving a deep mark on world literature with his subtle and unique sense of humour.
Chekhov renders the complex world of man visible with sharp detail. In The Bear, which he repeatedly rewrote, he criticizes the social view of the period in his unique style. In the play, the squabbles between a woman mourning the death of her husband and a man nicknamed ‘The Bear’ who arrives to collect her husband’s debt are told in a very humorous manner. This game between the duo, which goes back and forth on the fringes of hate and love, offers the audience something beyond situational comedy as it also sheds light on the rarely addressed quirks of romance.
Director Vladimir Pankov’s interpretation of The Bear, which is a co-production of the Moscow Playwright and Director Centre and Chekhov International Theatre Festival, invites us to a laughter-filled theatre session...
