By Michael Frayn
Adapted from an original play by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Peter McGuire

“The world can rejoice in a ‘new’ play by Chekhov...” - London Sunday Express

Platonov has a way with women. It’s both his blessing and his curse. He knows he’s a cad, but he just can’t help it: women simply believe everything he says! The story takes place in a provincial country estate where Anna, the landowner and a young widow, returns for the summer. Friends, neighbours and family, including her stepson Sergey and his new wife Sofya, welcome her home with a party and as the hot summer day progresses, everyone is playing elaborate games of romantic cat and mouse in one hilarious love triangle. This “Brilliant!” (London Guardian) re-visioning of Chekhov’s unfinished play swings between the polar opposites of melodrama and farce, and shakes them into an intoxicating cocktail.

Wild Honey is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
