A new version by
For years, Vanya and his niece Sonya have laboured on their family’s country estate in relative harmony. But when Sonya’s father returns from the big city with a glamorous new bride, unfulfilled desires and fierce family loyalties collide to destroy the status quo.
This bittersweet exploration of love, hope and longing is heartbreakingly human, achingly poignant and laced with irony.
Annie Baker’s revitalisation of this theatrical classic brings the play into the 21st century while retaining the timelessness of Chekhov’s wit, insight and emotional depth.
