Wild Honey

Hampstead Theatre presents Michael Frayn’s Wild Honey, directed by Howard Davies and Jonathan Kent. This comedy of errors, drawn from Chekhov’s untitled – and posthumously discovered – early play, is a tale of nineteenth century Russian life replete with classic misunderstandings, irrepressible desires and nostalgia for a vanishing world.

Village schoolmaster Mikhail Vasilyevich 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. Geoffrey Streatfeild will make his Hampstead Theatre debut in the role of Platonov. The cast also includes Bruce AlexanderJoe BannisterGunnar CautherySimon ChandlerKammy DarweishJoe EvansMatthew FlynnJo HerbertRebecca HumphriesJustine MitchellAdrian RichardsSophie Rundle and Howard Ward.
