In this adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s play On the Harmful Effects of Smoking, Nikolai Nikotine is forced by his overbearing wife to deliver a symposium against one of his only remaining pleasures in life: smoking. But his topic soon turns from tobacco to the pitfalls of marriage and the trials and tribulations of being Nikolai Nikotine. Further in this blog you can find video teasers and more detailed information about the show and the artist.
Over the course of an hour, Nikotine lies and tells the truth, loves and hates, sings and dances, makes important decisions and introduces the audience to his only friends.
