    Wild Honey
    By Anton Chekhov, adapted and translated by Michael Frayn

    7:45pm, Tue 29th January 2019–Sat 2nd February 2019, at ADC Theatre
    Lent Week 2

    'You funny creature! A woman who loves you - a woman you love - fine summer weather. What could be simpler than that?'

    Charming, handsome, and with an opinion on everything, once upon a time Platonov seemed bound for greatness. Now he is a simple country schoolteacher and husband to a dutiful yet unimaginative wife. Arriving at the local estate one day for lunch with old friends, he is reunited with Sofya, a beautiful and recently married woman from his university days. Halfway between Hamlet and Don Juan, Platonov is desperate for a bit excitement and can't resist taking advantage of his one true gift: making himself utterly irresistible to women.

    Adapted from Chekhov's untitled earliest complete work, which remained unperformed in his lifetime, Wild Honey is Michael Frayn's romp through the Russian countryside. A blending of the farcical and the tragic, this unique piece captures the combined absurdity and despair at the heart of Chekhov's scenario, creating the world of a gloriously bittersweet summer where none of the rules apply.
