About the Play:

Wild Honey is a full-length comedy by Michael Frayn, adapted from an original play by Anton Chekhov. A provincial Russian schoolteacher struggles to remain faithful to his wife, despite the attentions of three other women, in Michael Frayn's adaptation of Anton Chekhov's first known play. The original had no name — the title page was missing — and usually it is called Platonov after the protagonist.

Michael Frayn has transformed the young Anton Chekhov's wild and rambling epic Platonov into a glorious and intriguing comic masterpiece that premiered at the National Theatre of Britain.

Cast: 6 women, 12 men.

What people say:

"One of the best evenings in the theater that Broadway has given us over the past few years." — New York Post

"The triumph of Frayn's translation/adaptation is to have taken the bones of this immature work and molded it to offer us a tantalizing glimpse of the genius to come." — London City Limits

"The world can rejoice in an "new' play by Chekhov … a sprawling study of a provincial Don Juan whose indiscriminate love of women leads not only to their downfall but to his own." — Sunday Express (London)

"Brilliant." — The Guardian (London)

"An uncomfortable cross between a Whitehall farce and a petulant midlife crisis comedy." — The Scotsman (Edinburgh)

About the Playwrights:

Anton Chekhov was the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays and is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama.

Michael Frayn has written plays, novels, and screenplays, in addition to being a journalist, documentary filmmaker, and translator of Chekhov. His thirteen plays include Copenhagen, which was awarded the Tony Award for Best Play, as well as the Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk awards and, in the United Kingdom, the Olivier and Evening Standard awards. His novel Headlong was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Born in London in 1933 and educated at Cambridge, Frayn is married to the biographer and critic Claire Tomalin; they live in London.
