An Evening of Bulgarian Puppetry
An Evening of Bulgarian Puppetry presents touring, world-class puppetry for adults, featuring Nikotine, an adaptation of Chekhov's play "On the Evils of Tobacco."

Co-presented by Trouble Puppet Theater Co. and Salvage Vanguard Theater in an intimate studio venue.

***two nights only***

Written, Directed & Starring Milena Milanova
Nikolai Nikotine is humiliated and terrorized by his wife. He appears before the audience, at her insistence, to discuss the evils of smoking. Embarking on a public psychotherapy session, Nikotine lies and tells the truth, loves and hates, makes important decisions, tests our patience, sings and dances, and introduces us to his only friends, trying in vain the whole time to speak against one of his few remaining pleasures in life: smoking.

This adaptation of On the Evils of Tobacco by Anton Chekhov stars actress/interpreter Milena Milanova and a grumpy Russian puppet in a cabaret-style atmosphere, where the audience can experience the Slavic spirit in both its cruel and amusing incarnations.

Praise for Nikotine: "Combining puppetry with some beautiful scenes of physical theatre, 'Nikotine' is at the same time sweet, unique and strangely addictive." - Martin Miller, Hairline
"The connection between Milanova and her puppet is immediately obvious and a pleasure to behold." - Julie Dawson, Edinburgh Reporter
"Throughout, this is puppetry of a very high order indeed, and Milanova's considerable skills outshine those of many highly competent puppet companies." - Bill Dunlop, Edinburgh Guide

Awards for Nikotine:
The Union of Polish Actors First Prize
The UNIMA Poland Prize First Prize at the 7th International Gala Star Drama Festival
