A Tripping Tongue

No one understands the subtleties of the human condition like Chekhov does. In A Tripping Tongue, a train of Freudian slips reveal the truth about a young wife’s vacation to her increasingly frustrated husband. This short story was one of many that Chekhov wrote to help to pay for his education in medical school under his nom de plume Antosha Chekhonte. Adapted for the screen by Creative Producer/Director Michael Witta.
