Hodný pan doktor
Witty comedy based on A.P. Chekhov’s short stories.
„Three roubles, sir. No more than that. Three roubles and you will see him in the water, struggling with death, drowning and the grand final – completely drowned! May he rest in peace.”
It has been 29 years since the three legends of Ostrava’s drama scene met on stage. This year they meet again. The audience has a chance to see them in the production of Niel Simon's comedy. Directed by Bedrich Jansa, starring Alexandra Gasnarkova and Stanislav Sarsky!
Niel Simon is a master of dialogue; Chekhov is a master of describing human character. Combining the two we get nine exquisite, funny and very realistic theatre pieces. A man, who is willing to drown right in front of you for a few bucks and gives out group discounts; a father, who wants to buy his inexperienced son his “first time” in brothel, where even his “first” still works; a loner, who sneezes on the back of the neck of his boss and loses all over it… The tragedy of life seen through comedy, an intellectual view of the stupidity we all possess.
