Platonov archiveRussian schoolteacher, Mikhail Platonov, has a problem, one he has lived with all his life - he's irresistible to women. Alongside the attentions of his home-loving wife, Sasha, he must also attend to the racing pulses of Maria Grekova, a young chemistry student, Sofya Yegorovna, a married acquaintance from his past, and most dangerously of all, one of Chekhov's greatest creations, Anna Petrovna, a formidably intelligent widow. If that wasn't enough, he's broke, in debt, and about to lose his home. For the sanity of everyone, and the stability of society, something must be done about Platonov. Set in the blazing heat of the middle of nowhere, complete with criminals who live in the forest and a runaway train, this freewheeling comedy is a cry of defiance at the adult traps of conventionality and moral hypocrisy.

Author Anton Chekhov.
