About Chekhov and Sartre

"SWAN SONG" – A tribute in commemoration of 160 years since Anton Chekhov's birth. Our great International Cast will perform ALL Chekhov's plays in one night! Sad and funny, witty and ridiculous – it's all about us. …Vasili a 68-year-old comic actor and Nikita the old theatre's prompter. Following a benefit evening in his honour, unbeknownst to everyone, the comic actor Vasili falls asleep in a drunken blur. When he awakens, the theatre is dark and empty. He starts to recollect his glorious past… "NO EXIT" by Jean Paul Sartre – "Hell is other people!" – our legendary intense, cruel and sexual version of this masterpiece. 5 times sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. ... Three people are trapped in Hell — which is a single room — and ultimately, while confessing their sins to one another, end up falling into a bizarre love triangle.
