SRT 2017 Summer Festival: The Many Faces of Farce

Our 19th summer festival The Many Faces of Farce (July - August 2017) includes three Chekhov farces, The BearThe Proposal, and The Anniversary, followed by a devised piece based on Vsevolod Meyerhold’s 1935 adaptation of these same pieces, entitled 33 Swoons. The play was a critical failure in the USSR. Stalin closed down Meyerhold'stheater in 1937, arrested him in 1939, and executed him in 1940. The productions will be directed by SRT Associate Artistic Director Alex Johnson.
