The Dangers of Tobacco & The Proposal - Chekhov Comedy Shorts


Season 1 / Episode 3

In “The Dangers of Tobacco”, Nyukhin, a brow-beaten husband of a domineering wife, delivers, at her command, a lecture on the harmful effects of smoking tobacco. However, as he struggles to stick to the subject matter, we learn of his regrets, his yearnings and his miserable life ‘under the thumb’. Then, in “The Proposal”, nervous hypochondriac Lomov visits his neighbor Natasha to ask for her hand in marriage. But his romantic endeavors are scuppered when the couple, and also her father, find themselves in a circle of petty arguments, disagreements and an unstoppable bout of one-upmanship.
