Nikotine

By: Anton Chekhov

Company: Milena Milanova of Atelier 313

This adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s one act comedy, "On the Harmful Effects of Smoking", presents a puppet version of Nikolay Nikotine, a man terrorized and traumatized by an overbearing wife. His conference on the ills of tobacco smoking, which his wife has forced him to give, quickly degenerates into a monologue about the trials and tribulations of being Nikolay Nikotine and the ills of marriage. Throughout his discourse Nikolay lies and tells the truth, loves and hates, sings and dances and speaks against one of his few remaining pleasures in life: smoking tobacco.
