Directed by BOTOS BÁLINT


Chekhov was 18 when he wrote his first play. Its protagonist has often been compared to Hamlet or Don Juan. The author himself has frequently made this comparison between his hero and the two characters. However, there are some obvious differences: instead of a royal court, the play takes place in a dusty small town. These people are not driven by intrigue, but desperation. What we see is not a prince, but a country teacher. Chekhov's protagonist is one of us: a family man, with a wife and son, yet not a father. Perhaps a man, perhaps a philosopher, perhaps just a human being.

 

Bálint Botos was born and raised in Salonta. He studied acting in Târgu Mureş, and later directing in Cluj-Napoca. He has worked for Anton Pann Theatre Râmnicu Vâlcea, the independent company  Váróterem Projekt in Cluj-Napoca, and Figura Studio Theatre in Gheorgheni, besides teaching aspiring actors at the Hungarian Theatre Institute of Babeș–Bolyai University.
