WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Anton Chekhov's most revered work of hope, love, and loss in an exhilarating Austin premiere. When a retired professor and his beautiful young wife are forced to withdraw to an estate in the vast country emptiness, their arrival explodes hidden passions and the lives of the entire family come undone. Shattered illusions, deep secrets, and the desire for love run through the acclaimed play, which has been staged in theaters for over 100 years. Both joyously comic and poignantly tragic, this newly adapted interpretation by Rod Mechem captures all of Chekhov's dynamic characters, each struggling to find a life of meaning and happiness. Uncle Vanya is a classic of world drama still expressing themes that are just as recognizable and resonant today. A must-see for any theater lover!
