Platonov, or the Disinherited is Jay Scheib and Company’s remix of the traditions of Shakespeare-in-the-park, the ribald nostalgia of the drive-in movie, and recent design experiments in environmentally sustainable and affordable housing to present a live-cinema performance based on Anton Chekhov’s unfinished, first full-length play.
About the MAP Fund
The MAP Fund is founded on the principle that experimentation drives human progress, no less in art than in science or medicine. MAP supports artists, ensembles, producers and presenters whose work in the disciplines of contemporary performance embodies this spirit of exploration and deep inquiry. MAP is particularly interested in supporting work that examines notions of cultural difference or “the other,” be that in class, gender, generation, race, religion, sexual orientation or other aspects of diversity.
