The Proposal

The Proposal*CAUTION: Proposing may be hazardous to your health!*

When a hypochondriac landlord decides to get married, he chooses his neighbour's daughter as his bride-to-be. However, he does not expect that a marriage proposal can prove to be a very difficult business, especially when there are meadows and dogs involved.

The Proposal is not only a hilarious comedy, it is also an acute social commentary, in which Chekhov exposes the idleness, the absurdity and the utter uselessness of the Russian gentry in the 19th century.
