17-02-2018 12:00:00 11-03-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Platonov, or A Play with No Name Blessed Unrest presents Platonov, or A Play with No Name Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens from the play by Anton Chekhov Directed by Jessica Burr A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest’s raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play with No Name, in new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures – except for the protagonist – and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him. Cast: Irina Abraham Chigiryov, Ashley Hildreth, Javon Minter, Darrell Stokes, Becca Schneider, and Taylor Valentine. Dramaturgy: Jessi Blue Gormezano Costume design: Sarah Thea. February 17 – March 11, 2018 Performance schedule: Sat, Feb 17, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 18, 3:00pm Thu, Feb 22, 7:00pm Fri, Feb 23, 8:00 pm Sat, Feb 24, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 25, 3:00pm Mon, Feb 26, 7:00pm Fri, March 2, 8:00pm Sat, March 3, 8:00pm Sun, March 4, 3:00pm Mon, March 5, 7:00pm Thu, March 8, 7:00 pm Fri, March 9, 8:00pm Sat, March 10, 3:00pm and 8:00pm Sun, March 11, 3:00pm http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=274360 New Ohio Theatre New Ohio Theatre
