The Last Laugh is a combination of two one-act plays. The first, In the Cemetery, is a comic drama based on Anton Chekhov’s play of the same name. Set in a Jewish cemetery, this poignant, funny play is about a harried young businessman who has hired a rabbi to say prayers over his father’s grave.

“The combination of silly comedy and deep pathos is quite astonishing.” — N.Y. Daily News

The second one-act is called The Cure, also based on an Anton Chekhov play, A Cure for Drinking. Set in a theatre dressing room at the turn-of-the-century, this frenetic farce is about the efforts of a troupe of Yiddish actors to sober up their lead actor, a great star and a hopeless drunk.

“Delightfully frenetic.” — N.Y. Times; “Extremely Funny.” — N.Y. Daily News
