OBLOMOV

Through September 22 Rave Reviews in the Boston Globe!

Oblomov by Kevin Rice

Directed by Daisy Walker

Performances Wednesday - Sunday through September 22

Kevin Rice, Artistic Director of Payomet, has a new play going up at the Wellfleet Actors Theatre (WHAT).  It's the American premiere of Oblomov, adapted from Ivan Goncharov's classic Russian novel.
 
Oblomov, slave to slumber and sultan of sloth, looms as one of the greatest satirical — and definitely the most horizontal — heroes ever penned, a man who doesn’t get out of bed before late afternoon, if at all.  In this adaptation, the prince of procrastination comes brilliantly alive or, at least, awake for an hour and a half as he and his servant, Zakhar (think Don Quixote and Sancho Panza) are pitted against the world.  A Mystery Woman fills out this rollicking and often comic epic that takes the audience on a wild ride, something of a timeless commute between the neon lights of today’s Moscow and Oblomov’s imagined field of ripe but unharvested dreams.
