Russian Classics Theatre warmly invites you to enjoy the collection of her theatrical miniatures under the title of "Nostalgia", which we believe portrays well the main emotion that underpinned whole life of Nadeszda Teffi.
In Russian with English subtitles.
Nadeszda Teffi was a much loved Russian satirical writer. She was known as a Queen of Laughter in her native country and her sense of humor was often compared to that of Chekov.
She was also a poet, translator and a very original playwright. She had to spend most of her life abroad, far away from the country she adored, as she was never able to come to terms with the Revolution and its imprint on the society. Perhaps that's why her brilliant satirical stories are often tinted with gentle sadness.
