Howard Davies directs Wild Honey at the Hampstead Theatre.

Multi-award winner Michael Frayn returns to Hampstead with a comic new play adapted from the play without a name by Anton Checkov.

Frayn’s 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.

Wild Honey runs from 2 December 2016 until 14 January 2017 at the Hampstead Theatre.

STORY

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.

CAST

The cast also includes Geoffrey Streatfeild, Bruce Alexander, Joe Bannister, Gunnar Cauthery, Simon Chandler, Kammy Darweish, Joe Evans, Matthew Flynn, Jo Herbert, Rebecca Humphries, Justine Mitchell, Adrian Richards, Sophie Rundle and Howard Ward.

CREATIVE

Adaptation by Michael Frayn from The Play Without A Title by Anton Checkov, with direction by Howard Davies.
