RADIO: Wild Honey Part Two Starring David Tennant Repeats On BBC Radio Four Today


David Tennant stars in the concluding episode of the two-part radio production of the epic comedy commonly known as Platonov, which is repeated on BBC Radio 4 this afternoonat 3pm. The play is a version of Michael Frayn’s 1984 stage adaptation of the original work by Chekhov, which is performed under the title Wild Honey. David is joined in the production by Olivia Darnley, Elliot Levey, and John Hollingworth.

Wild Honey
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.

Platonov - What's going to become of us all?
Anna - You seem just a tiny bit less married
Platonov - How are we going to survive our lives?
Anna - First of all by enjoying the fireworks.

And fireworks is what follows.....
