Uncle Vanya

By Anton Chekhov

Translated by Richard Nelson, Richard Pivear, and Larisa Volokhonsky

About the Production:


Alexander, A retired professor and his younger second wife, Eléna, return to the rural estate that supports their urban lifestyle. Two friends—Vanya, brother of the professor's late first wife, who has long managed the estate, and Astrov, the local doctor—both fall under Eléna's spell. Sonya, the professor's daughter by his first wife, who has worked with Vanya to keep the estate going, suffers from her unrequited feelings for Astrov. Matters are brought to a crisis when the professor announces his intention to sell the estate, Vanya and Sonya's home…
