An Evening With Stephen Leacock
This presentation features Stark as the disheveled McGill University professor - a Leacock trademark, and draws upon Leacock's vast body of work which consists of over forty volumes of humor and essays. Leacock's style was much like Mark Twains'. One of his most famous sketches, "My financial career" was first published in LIFe magazine in 1896. the story focuses on the plight of a bashful young man's first brush with the intimidating world of high finance. It is typical Leacock: the little man, Chaplinesque in character; always at odds with the machinations of modern society; never quite fitting in anywhere; confused, perplexed, flustered, and someone that everyone can identify with. By the 1920, Leacock had become the most widely read humorist in the english speaking language.
Chekhov And Maria
Anton Chekhov is suffering from a terminal case of T.B., and trying to complete his last play the Cherry Orchard.
