The (Marriage) Proposal (1889) written Anton Chekhov and produced at the Vassar College Theater, USA, in 1927
Some scenes from The Proposal (first published in 1889) written by the Russian playwright Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) and produced at the Vassar College Theater, USA, in 1927. They performed it three times in one evening, each with a very different staging: in the second version, played closer to tragedy, the actors were masked, and in the third the actors were all dressed in work suits in a playground, tossing a ball between them.
