"The Celebration" by Anton Chekhov (translated by Eric Bentley), directed by Jamie Sievert.

Chekhov wrote a number of one-act plays. They are generally farces and "The Celebration" is no exception. A bank president is derailed in his attempt to celebrate the bank's anniversary by an insolent employee, a frivolous wife and a demanding client.
