The adaptation, of the early written and very long Tjekhov comedy PLATINOV, is so freely done that it is more often considered to be a work of Frayn than of Tjekhov. Obviously, the themes belong to Tjekhov; bankruptcy of the landed gentry, the intellectuals’ dilettantism, the boredom of provincial life etc but Michael Frayn has added an extra touch of comicality.
