5603725Uncle Vanya
DateFriday 3rd November 2017 to Saturday 25th November 2017
DescriptionAn ageing irritable professor returns to his deceased wife's country estate with Yelena, his beautiful young wife. The estate has been managed for years by the Professor's daughter, Sonya, and his brother-in-law, Uncle Vanya. It is their self-sacrifice and toil which has maintained his extravagant lifestyle in the city. When the politically impassioned local Doctor Astrov is called to the house and meets Yelena, tensions spiral rapidly into a desperate comedy about unrequited love. Chekhov's characters exist on the brink of a new era; a new order is approaching. One they fear. Written 20 years before the Russian Revolution, what does this much loved play tell us about the world we live in today? Taking Russia's past as inspiration in this historic year Walter Meierjohann's production, starring HOME's Associate artist Katie West as Sonya, Nick Holder as Uncle Vanya, Jason Merrells as Astrov, and David Fleeshman as the professor, explores the acutely tragic and deeply comic spirit or Chekhov's late masterpiece with a bold visual design and live music.
