About Young Chekhov
Schoolteacher Mikhail Platonov has a problem – he’s irresistible to women. Set in the blazing heat of a rural summer, this freewheeling comedy is a cry of youthful defiance against the compromises of middle age.
Nikolai Ivanov is only 35, a radical and a romantic, but already he’s feeling that he’s thrown his life away. He hopes one last desperate romance may save him from becoming a small-town Hamlet.
This electric play is powered both by hilarious satire and passionate self-disgust.
On a summer’s day in a makeshift theatre by a lake, Konstantin’s cutting-edge new play is performed, changing the lives of everyone involved forever.
The Young Chekhov trilogy opened to overwhelming acclaim and five star reviews at Chichester Festival Theatre last year. The company now come to the National from 14 July.
