WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A secluded country estate becomes the setting for unrequited love, renewed rivalries, and ruminations both absurd and tragic on roads barely taken and passions left unfulfilled. Chekhov's timeless study of the agonizing intersections of youth and mid-life finds contemporary immediacy in Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker's fresh and compelling adaptation.
Baker's adaptation of Uncle Vanya first premiered in 2012 off-Broadway at the Soho Repertory Theatre. Baker noted that she wanted to "create a version that sounds to our contemporary American ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears during the play's first productions."
