Wild Honey - 2016 - West End

£35 - £50

Village schoolmaster Mikhail Vasilyevich 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.

Michael Frayn’s comedy of errors, drawn from Chekhov’s untitled – and posthumously discovered - early play, is a tale of nineteenth century Russian life replete with classic misunderstandings, irrepressible desires and nostalgia for a vanishing world.

Schedule

Running Time: 2 hours and 20 minutes, with one intermission

On the heels of playing to rapt audiences at SXSW, Anna Shoemaker has shared new single 'Home.' The track premiered via Wild Honey Pie who note 'The infusion of R&B with the light lilting of acoustic instruments give 'Home' a freshly intimate and evasive quality to it. As Shoemaker's voice fills the song with style and swoon-worthy inflections, it becomes more clear that she's an artist to watch.' Anna states, 'The idea behind the song isn't necessarily a physical place, but a person. It's about being all over the place, feeling lost trying to get a hold of this someone who feels like your home. The song is about more than just a drunk dial. It's not as much about wanting this person as it is about needing them.'
