Olivier Award-winner Conor McPherson’s stunning new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece, UNCLE VANYA, is a portrayal of life at the turn of the 20th Century, full of tumultuous frustration, dark humour and hidden passions.
Critically acclaimed director Ian Rickson returns to Chekhov for the first time since his landmark production of The Seagull in 2007, reuniting with BAFTA and Olivier Award-winner Toby Jones (The Birthday Party) alongside Richard Armitage, who returns to the UK stage six years after his Olivier Award-nominated performance in The Crucible.
They are joined by Rosalind Eleazar (The Personal History of David Copperfield, Deep Water), Aimee Lou Wood (Sex Education, Downstate), Emmy Award-winning Anna Calder-Marshall (LOVE, Evening at the Talk House), Olivier and Tony-Award nominated Dearbhla Molloy (The Ferryman, Dancing at Lughnasa), Peter Wight (The Birthday Party, Hamlet) and Olivier Award-nominated Ciarán Hinds (Translations, Game of Thrones, Girl from the North Country).
Don’t miss this astonishing combination of creative talent as they breathe new life into the treasured Chekhovclassic.
