David Tennant has been shortlisted for the Best Actor award at this year's BBC Audio Drama Awards. He is nominated for his role as Platonov is BBC Radio 4's Wild Honey.
The play is a version of Michael Frayn’s 1984 stage adaptation of the original work by Chekhov.
Wild Honey is a rumbustious 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 BBC Audio Drama Awards celebrates the exceptional talent and vibrancy of audio drama and pays tribute to the cultural importance of audio drama, on air and online. They are intended to give recognition to the actors, writers, producers, sound designers and others who work in the genre.
The finalists will be announced on Tuesday 8th January 2019, and the winners will be revealed at a ceremony, hosted by Tracy-Ann Oberman, in the Radio Theatre at BBC Broadcasting House London on the evening of Sunday 3rd February 2019.
