The Bet

The Bet is one of Anton Chekov’s iconic plays. In this play, two people meet and engage in a discussion. One is a rich man and the other is a common man. The discussion soon turns into an argument and the premise of the argument is whether capital punishment is harsher or life imprisonment. In the end, the poor man willingly gets locked up in a cell for 14 years after surrendering all sources of communication.

If he can stay in this cell for the stipulated time, he wins a big sum of money and the rich man loses face. As the play unfolds, learn what happens.
