This June, multi-award-winning director Bronwen Coleman (Dirt, Naomi, Ignis) and the Anthropocene Play Company breathe immediacy and new life into Anton Chekhov’s renowned classic, Uncle Vanya.
Returning to the family's country home with his gorgeous, much younger, wife the revered Professor Serebryakov is in turn adored and secretly resented by the extended family that has supported him for years. The shock announcement that he’s thinking of selling the estate causes years of bitterness and disappointment to bubble to the surface and threatens to horribly dismantle the lives of those who call it home. Both comic and tragic, Uncle Vanya is Chekhov at his finest. Sex, gout, and existential angst all come in to play as the characters wrestle with what it is to be human.
