Uncle Vanya comes to the Harold Pinter Theatre from 14 January

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.

 

It’s hard to think of an actor better able to conjure the rumpled charm, eccentricity and irascibility for which Vanya’s character calls than Toby Jones.’

(The Telegraph)

 

‘This creative team sells itself with electric stage actors.’

(The Guardian)

 

Director Ian Rickson teams up again with Toby Jones to deliver Chekhov’s great masterpiece.
