Uncle Vanya

Anton Chekov

Uncle Vanya


A palpable sense of 'what might have been' fills the air for the characters who inhabit a country estate in a small Russian village.

Set in the 1890's, Uncle Vanya uncovers the desperate longing, unrequited love and bitter frustrations that surface when an ageing professor and his young wife return home.

Darkly comic, deeply touching and rich in language and emotion, Chekhov's masterpiece is a passionate and often very funny exploration of love, desire and loss.
