Summary

Uncle Vanya

By Anton Chekhov
Translated by Richard NelsonRichard Pevear, and Larissa Volokhonsky
Directed by Richard Nelson

An exhilarating revival that pairs one of the greatest plays ever written with the world’s most celebrated translators of Russian literature. Vanya and his niece Sonya struggle to care for the estate owned by Vanya’s brother-in-law, a wealthy and celebrated professor. When this local legend returns with a beautiful new wife and announces his plans to sell the estate, hidden passions explode and the lives of the entire family come undone. This Globe-commissioned world premiere translation, performed in an unusually intimate and conversational style, provides an up-close encounter with a classic of world drama that every theatre-lover must see.

This production is supported in part by the Jean and Gary Shekhter Fund for Classic Theatre.

This translation of Uncle Vanya by Richard Nelson, Richard Pevear, and Larissa Volokhonsky was commissioned by The Old Globe with generous support from the Jean and Gary Shekhter Fund for Classic Theatre.
