First published in 1899, Anton Chekhov's short story is adapted by Mark Giesser for a stage production at the White Bear Theatre from 20 February to 10 March 2018.


Damian Granville is a banker and devoted family man with an unconventional way of taking his summer holidays: he travels alone and looks for a woman to seduce.


This particular year he spots a beautiful young lady walking a white Pomeranian dog.


How can he resist?


He's a skilful player and sure of success.


Except Anne Dennis isn't quite what he bargains for.


Writer/director Mark Giesser has written, produced and directed numerous Equity Off-West End and Off-Broadway shows.
