Chekhov's timeless comedy "A Reluctant Tragic Hero" sees Johnny Vegas portray an exasperated man looking for sympathy.

Exhausted from running countless errands for friends and family, Ivan Ivanovitch Tolkachov visits his good friend Murashkin (played by Mackenzie Crook “The Office”) to let off steam. But he leaves with more problems than he started with.

Written in 1889 and alternatively titled “A Tragedian in Spite of Himself," Anton Chekhov’s one-act play delves into the depths of human nature, the significance concealed in seemingly little events, and the fine line that separates tragedy from comedy.
