A young man gives a present of "a work of art", or so he thinks, with very interesting consequences. This is one of Chekov's most humorous stories.More
From Man Ray to Mapplethorpe, Lady Chatterley to Lady Gaga, a key hallmark of art has always been its propensity for shock value - its seemingly timeless tendency to incense and outrage audiences’ sensibilities. Russian short story master Anton Chekov takes on art’s controversial character in this farcical tale of a small candelabra that no one seems to want. In a scant 10 minutes, sprightly performer Walter Zimmerman single-handedly brings to life a small town’s worth of unique characters, with their affected foibles and self-satisfying morals. Zimmerman’s knack for voice acting plays perfectly with this dialogue-driven satire.
