The Suicide, a Soviet vaudeville

Semyon is an unemployed young man who is supported by his wife Masha and believes the solution to his predicament is to learn to play an instrument: the tuba. But his plan fails and, after a row with Masha, he disappears, threatening to breathe “his last sigh!” Panicked, Masha warns her neighbours and the entire building is seized with fear, with all the residents getting involved and seeking to profit from the situation. What follows is an onslaught of manoeuvring and manipulation, much to the chagrin of Semyon, who has only one desire: to live! From this satirical work (which was banned by the Soviet regime in 1928 before it could even be performed), Jean Bellorini and his cast construct an incredible ode to joy worthy of a modern fairytale.
