The Sneeze
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The Sneeze is a collection of hilarious short plays by the great Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, translated and adapted by Michael Frayn. Among historys most celebrated dramatists next to Shakespeare, Chekhov wrote plays that could expose our deepest fears and longings while leaving us laughing through the tears. These are just a handful of the vaudeville-inspired short plays and stories that Chekhov wrote early in his career before creating the full-length masterpieces for which he would become most famous. Anyone who has seen The Seagull or Three Sisters will recognize Chekhovs distinct voice in these vividly drawn characters.
