Platonov - Young Chekhov Season

Platonov - Young Chekhov Season

Schoolteacher Mikhail Platonov has a problem – he’s irresistible to women. Set in the blazing heat of a rural summer, this freewheeling comedy is a cry of youthful defiance against the compromises of middle age.

Adapted by David Hare whose stage plays include Skylight, Pravada and screenplays include The Hours and The Reader, directed by Jonathan Kent (Gypsy, Private Lives).

Our Platonov - Young Chekhov Season Review

Individual ratings: "Platonov" (*****), "Ivanov" (****), and "The Seagull" (****) There'a a surprising paradox at the heart of a day's theatre of three plays that each revolve in different ways around characters suffering from debilitating depressions, and that is that they are far from depressing.
