From April 2014 at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End becomes the new home of Anton Chekhov’s famous play Uncle Vanya. It will be one of two productions of Chekhov’s work to appear at the venue under the direction of the renowned Andrei Konchalovsky. The show is performed in Russian with English subtitles.
Uncle Vanya is a famous tale of characters returning to a precious family estate whilst a complex web of lusting and unrequited feelings take a hold of the characters and the threat of its sale looms. A professor and his wife Elena are among them and various other characters begin to pine after her such as Vanya and Dr Astrov. Meanwhile, the professor’s daughter Sonya is also present and her feelings are directed at the doctor, with shocking plans emerging that are set to make all of these matters irrelevant should they go ahead.
Chekhov’s play is a familiar one to London theatre audiences and for international fans that have enjoyed its story since it first premiered at the Moscow Art Theatre in the late 1890s. It stands up as one of his famous pieces alongside the likes of Three Sisters, The Cherry Orchard and The Seagull, among others, and it has a special place in the hearts of audiences. This is reflected in its re-appearances around the world over the last century, with Laurence Olivier and Ian McKellen among those that have stepped into this world in some of the performances.
Uncle Vanya appears in repertoire with Three Sisters at the Wyndham’s Theatre. It runs from Wednesday 23rd April 2014 to Saturday 3rd May 2014.
