WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Platonov, or The Disinherited, is a new, live cinema adaptation of Chekhov's first full-length play chronicling an emotionally bankrupt society of anti-heroes who are, less heroically, also losing their loves, their homes and perhaps, their humanity as well. It is a journey with a sense of humor first and foremost that races into the dark hearts of ecstasy, loyalty, selflessness, money and pride. The piece is staged as a site-specific, live cinema performance that mixes freely the experience of Shakespeare in the park with the nostalgia of a drive-in movie. Simultaneously a play and a film, this physically-daring and emotionally-charged performance brings Scheib's acclaimed ensemble to the west coast for the first time.
