Semyon Semyonovitch is officially a looser, a member of the perpetually unemployed. News of his impending suicide sends his neighbours into a flurry of excitement and sets tongues wagging in his communal building. The people, however lowly, are no fools. Written in 1928 and banned before its first performance, Le Suicidé, a play by Nicolaï Erdman reflects on the farce and tragedy of Russia as it sheds its revolutionary ideals and sinks into the mire of Stalinism. It is often said that humour is a polite form of despair, and this play is perhaps its greatest illustration. For Jean Bellorini, it “is like a frantic race, a convulsive ballet of colourful characters.” Le Suicidé is a biting satire that hits its target with unerring accuracy.
