Uncle Vanya, Chekhov's masterpiece of frustrated longing, tells the story of Professor Serebryakov and his young wife Yelena who have left St. Petersburg and settled on the family's remote country estate. It is here that Sonya, the Profesor's daughter from his first marriage, and her Uncle Vanya have labored for years to support Serebryakov. Their arrival sends the estate into chaos, disrupting the daily routines of country life and sparking passions and triangles of tension as the characters struggle with their frustrated desires and disillusionment. Vanya and his friend Astrov, the local doctor, vie for Yelena's attention, while Sonya and Yelena find themselves irresistibly attracted to Astrov. There will be a 2pm matinee on Sunday, February 27th.
