Proposal Goes Awry

A localized adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s ‘A Marriage Proposal’ will be staged at Shahrzad Theater House from March 27-April 20. The adaptation is written and directed by Azim Mousavi and is accompanied by traditional songs and music of northern cities of Iran.  In Chekhov’s work, a fast-paced play of dialogue-based action and situational humor, Ivan Vassiliyitch Lomov, a long-time neighbor of Stepan Stepanovitch Chubukov, has come to propose marriage to Chubukov’s 25-year-old daughter, Natalia.  After he has asked and received joyful permission to marry Natalia, he tries to make the proposal. Lomov is a hypochondriac and while trying to make clear his reasons for being there, he gets into an argument with Natalia about the Oxen Meadows, a disputed piece of land between their respective properties, which results in him having palpitations and numbness in his leg. After her father notices they are arguing, he joins in and then sends Ivan out of the house.  The cast includes Saeed Amir-Soleymani, Mahmoud Rasekhfar, Ali Fat’hali, Hamidreza Moradi, Katayoun Bakhtiari, Negar Moqaddasi, Arefeh Eskandari and Mohammad Mortezaei. The theater house is at the intersection of Razi and Neauphle-le-Chateau streets.
