Uncle Vanya archiveSet on a crumbling country estate, Uncle Vanya is the tale of two obsessive love affairs that lead nowhere, and a flirtation that brings disaster. The irascible Vanya and his niece Sonya have managed the estate on behalf of their relative, a renowned Professor for the last twenty-five years. Now retired, the Professor and his beautiful young wife come to visit, throwing the household into disarray, igniting hidden passions and old grudges. Family ties are tested further when the ageing and gout-ridden Professor announces his plans to sell the estate and live off the proceeds in the city. By turns comic, tragic, romantic, and wistful, Chekhov's play is an unforgettable study of unfulfilled dreams and unrequited love. One of his four great masterpieces written on the eve of the twentieth century, it features a feast of subtle comic portraits of a family at logger heads with each other and the world around them, that still has resonance at the start of another new century. A workshop production. Creative Collaboration: Yael Shavit
Performers Christine Bottomley (Sonya), Jim Bywater (Telegin), Stuart McQuarrie (Vanya), Justine Mitchell (Yelena), Sheila Reid (Marina/Mariya), David Sibley (Serebryakov), Jonathan Slinger (Astrov).
