RADIO: Wild Honey Starring David Tennant Begins On BBC Radio Four On 16th June



David Tennant stars in a two part radio production of the Chekhov play known as Platonov, beginning on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday 16th June. Co-starring Olivia Darnley, Elliot Levey, and John Hollingworth, the comedy was adapted by Michael Frayn under the title Wild Honey.

Wild Honey

Everyone loves Platonov - but who does he really love? Perhaps it’s only himself.

Wild Honey contains a cornucopia of characters and themes, covering sexual comedy, morality, melodramatics, the state of contemporary Russia and a hint of tragedy.

Village schoolmaster Platonov 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.

The drama concludes on Sunday 17th from 3pm.
