RADIO NEWS: David Tennant To Star In Wild Honey For BBC Radio



David Tennant will be the star of a new BBC radio adaptation of Wild Honey, based on the untitled Anton Chekhov play commonly known as Platonov. 

The news was revealed by John Hollingworth, star of BBC One's Poldark in an interview given to Radio Times (SPOILER ALERT - don't click through unless you have watched the latest episode of Poldark!). John says that he and David play love rivals in the production, which contains elements of melodrama, farce and dark comedy. 

No broadcast date for the play has been announced yet, but keep checking our site - we'll post it as soon as we hear anything!

Chekhov's manuscript for the play, one of his earlier, rejected works, was discovered after his death with the title page missing. The original 5 hour epic has been trimmed down to a more playable version for a number of productions. The version known as Wild Honey was created in 1984 by UK playwright Michael Frayn.
