Running at the theatre from the 2nd December until the 14th January 2017, Michael Frayn’s Wild Honey will be directed by Hampstead’s Associate Artist Howard Davies.
Based on Chekhov’s untitled early play, Michael Frayn’s comedy of errors is a tale of 19th century Russia, filled with misunderstandings, desires and nostalgia for a rapidly disappearing world.
The production will see Geoffrey Streatfeild making his Hampstead Theatre debut in the role of Platonov. Joining him will be Bruce Alexander, Joe Bannister, Gunnar Cauthery, Simon Chandler, Kammy Darweish, Joe Evans, Matthew Flynn, Jo Herbert, Rebecca Humphries, Justine Mitchell, Adrian Richards and Sophie Rundle.
Village schoolmaster Platonov has it all: wit, intelligence, a comfortable and respectable life in provincial Russia, and the attentions of four beautiful women – one of whom is his devoted wife… As summer arrives and the seasonal festivities commence, the rapidly intensifying heat makes everyone giddy with sunlight, vodka – and passion.
The production will feature designs by Rob Howell, lighting by Peter Mumford and sound by Mike Walker.
Wild Honey will play at the Hampstead Theatre from the 2nd December until the 14th January 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://www.hampsteadtheatre.com/whats-on/2016/wild-honey/.
