Sheridan Smith playing Chekhov

Sheridan Smith is currently playing Elle Woods in Legally Blonde at the Savoy Theatre, but she is about to undertake a very different role the Proposal which is a one act Chekhov play. 

It is one of a series of four one act plays which have been commissioned by Sky Arts to mark the 150th anniversary of Chekhov’s birth.

The four plays are The Proposal (starring Sheridan and Matthew Horne) The Dangers of Tobacco featuring Steve Coogan, The Bear starring Julia Davis and A Reluctant Tragic Hero with Johnny Vegas and Mackenzie Crook. They will be broadcast this November.
