Kings of house
Theater – The Malicious Tobacco
Text: Anton Tchekhov
Casting and Crew: Horácio Guiamba
The play The Malicious Tobacco is a monologue where Russian writer Anton Tchekhov regains the character unrest of a man in the family and social womb. The play is regarded by critics as "the tragedy of a poor fool and the farce of a man who is not up to the task."
In this timeless and genuine play Tchekhov sketches the portrait of Niukhin, which has undergone successive alterations for sixteen years. Tchekhov subjected this character to changes in his characterization, appearing in the last version with a subtle nervous tic in the right eye.
In a context of cultural celebration of the centenary of October, the director and actor Horácio Guiamba proposes a new interpretation of the play.
