Our first play for Dubai's Short+Sweet festival this year is an adaptation of a Chekhov short story.

In Surgery, Chekhov takes a simple pastoral setting and places in it two very unlikely protagonists: A priest and a dentist. The play is also in part gleaned from Neil Simon's collection of Chekhov's short stories for the stage in The Good Doctor.

Part of Wildcards week 1, it's on at the Kilachand theatre, Ductac, Mall of the Emirates on Saturday the 7th of February, 2015 at 2:30 p.m.

The festival will run from the 6th to the 28th of February and will feature almost 70 plays. Tickets are available on Ductac's online store and at the venue.

See you there!
