Be taken in by a bold new adaptation of Chekhov’s first full-length play, “Platonov,” presented by some of the world’s most talented young actors.

Platonov is disillusioned. He is approaching middle age, a country schoolmaster with a failing marriage and a circle of friends who drink to mourn the passing of their idealism. In a world with extramarital affairs, attempted suicides, fights and comic desperation, Platonov is the unlikely hero.

This bold new adaptation of Chekhov’s first full-length play by the writer/creator of the critically acclaimed TV series “Slings and Arrows” brings a startlingly contemporary sensibility to the 19th Century drama while remaining true to the playwright’s voice and vision. In “Platonov,” all the classic Chekhovian elements shine: the juxtaposition of comedy and pathos, the deep insight into human nature, the unforgettable characters grappling with moral uncertainties. One of Chekhov’s most ambitious works, “Platonov” is a thrilling switchback ride between farce and tragedy.
