Uncle Vanya: From the Harold Pinter Theatre

Uncle Vanya: From the Harold Pinter Theatre
Description

This triumphant adaptation of Anton Chekov, filmed at the Harold Pinter theatre, is a must see. Epsecially with a glorious lead performance by Toby Jones (but when isn’t he sensational?)

The show sees Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their time on an isolated estate, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage). However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Roger Allam) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar), polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge.

As the conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, loneliness and each other, can the beauty of life help them find new hope?

Full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future, Uncle Vanya is a must-see event for our times.

***** “Toby Jones triumphs in perfect Chekhov.” Arifa Akbar, The Guardian.
