Uncle Vanya

As we await further guidance from the government regarding the safe re-opening of theatres, UNCLE VANYA performances continue to be postponed.

However, we are pleased to inform you that we are still planning to resume UNCLE VANYA performances at a later date. Once the new dates have been finalised, we will automatically transfer your booking and ticket(s) across to the closest equivalent performance within the limited run; and will contact you with all the new details. If you’re unable to attend the new date, please be assured that your point of purchase will be able to provide a credit voucher, exchange  or refund.

If you are a ticket holder you do not need to do anything for the moment as your ticket provider will be in contact.

For now, we would like to recognise our staff, artists and producers for their ongoing support. And, of course, especially you, for your continued commitment to our production and the theatre community during this time of uncertainty.

We look forward to welcoming you just as soon as possible.

Uncle Vanya at the Harold Pinter Theatre

In the heat of summer, Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their days on a crumbling estate deep in the countryside, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage).

However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Ciarán Hinds) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar) declaring his intention to sell the house, the polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge with devastating consequences.

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.

Uncle Vanya is designed by Rae Smith, with lighting by Bruno Poet, music by Stephen Warbeck, sound by Ian Dickinson and casting by Amy Ball CDG. Don’t miss this astonishing combination of creative talent as they breathe new life into the treasured Chekhov classic.
