Why Watch Uncle Vanya

Uncle Vanya, a dramatic depiction of life at the turn of the 20th century, is packed to the brim with dark humor, hidden passions, and turbulent frustrations. A brand new adaptation of Chekhov's classic play, Uncle Vanya is written by Olivier Award winner Conor McPherson. The play is directed by Ian Rickson, who tackles Chekhov again after his critically acclaimed 2007 production of The Seagull. The revival features a stunning ensemble with some of the biggest talents in the entertainment including, Toby Jones, Richard Armitage, Ciaran Hinds and more. This remarkable combination of stellar behind the stage and acting talent breathes new life into Chekhov's treasured masterpiece.

The Story

Uncle Vanya begins in the heat of the summer where Sonya and her uncle Vanya are wasting their days in a deteriorating estate deep in the countryside. Their only visitor is the local doctor Astrov, who drops by occasionally. The story picks up when Sonya's father Professor Serebryakov returns with his new wife Yelena, a restless enigma. Serebryakov announces his intention to sell the house and immediately all the pretend politeness fades away and feelings, long-repressed, come rushing back to the surface, leading to devastating consequences.
