by ANTON CHEKHOV adapted and directed by TREVOR NUNN
I cannot go on living in the country. Human beings were not meant to live in the wild.
Sonia and her Uncle Vanya lead an uneventful life on their country estate, animated only by visits from the dashing local doctor. But when Sonia’s famous father and his glamorous new wife unexpectedly turn up, old grudges return and new desires ignite. In the heat of summer, tempers boil over and forbidden lusts threaten to end in catastrophe.
An unmissable opportunity to see a theatrical masterpiece in the most intimate surroundings. Trevor Nunn is the multi award-winning former Artistic Director of the RSC and the National Theatre; he has previously staged Chekhov’s The Seagull and Three Sisters (RSC) and The Cherry Orchard (National Theatre), and now directs Uncle Vanya for the first time.
“Chekhov’s tale of unrequited love, ageing and disappointment in middle age is a perfect tragicomedy” The Guardian on Uncle Vanya
“One of the great plays” The Times on Uncle Vanya
