"Strikingly intimate…Ms. Baker has given the play a natural but distinctly contemporary American sound." - The New York Times
"A fresh rethinking of the material from the perspective of a modern mind." - Variety
The 16th production from the actors of Theatre9/12 is Annie Baker's contemporary adaptation of Anton Chekov's Uncle Vanya.
A stable but slowly decaying family's safe routine is turned upside down by the return of the revered patriarch and his strikingly alluring wife. Desire, disillusionment, and perceived destiny inflame and challenge their crucial tools for survival, alternating between ironic humor and touching tragedy.
