An NCPA-More2Screen Presentation
Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their time on an isolated estate, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage). However, when Sonya’s father, Professor Serebryakov (Roger Allam), suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar), polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge. As the conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, loneliness and each other, can the beauty of life help them find new hope? Sonia Friedman Productions’ stunning five-star production Uncle Vanya, a new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece by Conor McPherson directed by Ian Rickson, was abruptly halted as the world went into lockdown. Currently nominated for four Olivier Awards, Uncle Vanya—full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future—is a must-see event for our times.
