ABOUT Uncle Vanya
Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg ‘the finest ensemble theatre in Europe’ – Peter Brook – returns to London this spring for a strictly limited engagement.
Chekhov’s tragicomic masterpiece of dashed dreams and thwarted and eternal love returns to the West End in Lev Dodin’s definitive interpretation of this classic play.
Uncle Vanya runs from 15 May 2018 until 17 May 2018 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
Vanya, together with his niece Sonya, has sacrificed his life managing the estate of Professor Serebryakov, his former brother-in-law and Sonya’s father.
But when the Professor returns from the city with his glamorous young wife Yelena, tensions spiral as their world is thrown upside down.
