Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya

About This Show

Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya, an American retelling of the Russian classic, is set in the Reconstruction South. Centered on a former plantation in south-central Missouri, this adaptation combines Native American and African-American influences that both heighten and intensify the original Chekhovian text. The backdrop, being one of the most progressive periods in American history, instills a hope for what is possible, along with the awareness of the delicacy of social progress.

Uncle Abram awakens audiences’ spirit for a better tomorrow and tests their fortitude by asking this question: What are you willing to sacrifice to change the world?
