If you’re a fan of drawn out, pause-ridden, three-hour long productions of plays by Anton Chekhov, this show is not for you. This April, Readers Theatre Repertory brings you 'The Proposal': a farcical one-act comedy of hypochondria, petty grievances, and rom-com antics gone wrong. When Ivan Vassilevitch asks Natalia Stepanovna’s father for the young girl’s hand in marriage, his only obstacles are hyperactive nerves. But this drawing room comedy soon becomes a war zone as father, daughter, and suitor engage in a bitter battle as old as the ancient rituals of courtship and marriage, and that seemingly elusive dream of happily ever after.
Anton Chekhov’s 'The Proposal' is directed by David Berkson and stars Emily Hyde and Rhansen Mars. Show runs Friday and Saturday, April 13 and 14 at Blackfish Gallery, 420 NW 9th Ave in Portland. The show starts at 8PM and run about an hour. Admission is $10.00, cash or check only. Reservations are strongly encouraged, and walk-ins should arrive by 7:30P. All reserved seats will be released to walk-ins at 7:55P sharp. For information and ticket reservations: 971-266-3787, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
