Event Description

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.
