A Totally Ridiculous Incident in one Act

By Nikolai Gogol

A new version adapted and directed by Andrew Manley

Norberg Studio, Cornerstone Arts Centre

Marriage is an absurd and hilarious, fractured fairy tale about the business of matrimony. A town matchmaker and a newly married busybody best friend match wits in an intense race to marry off a gun-shy suitor. One bride, six men, two matchmakers and one family are seduced into the calamity that ensues and it is anybody’s guess whether the bride (or anybody) will make it to the altar. Gogol’s timeless and truly incredible classic Russian comedy from 1842 is as fresh and silly and sharp as it ever was.

Perfect nonsense goes on in the world. Sometimes there is no plausibility at all. What is utterly absurd happens.          Nikolai Gogol

Luigi Pirandello’s masterpiece of 1921 could not be more timely: How do we create who and what we are? What is our essential self? And how do we perform that role? A rehearsal is suddenly interrupted by unexpected intruders. Their demands of the artists in the hall reflect a basic human desire to know and live our own story. See for yourself.
