In fact, I did not read this edition, but just five freely available short plays translated into different languages (Spanish, French and English). They are the following:
1. On the high road (En el camino real)
2. Juguete cómico
3. The wedding (Une noce)
4. Smoking is bad for you (Sobre el daño que hace el tabaco)
5. The proposal
I like them all, but specially "The proposal." This has been my favorite Chekhov (Chejov) production for years.
