Anton Chekhov, with a new adaptation by Conor McPherson

Résumé: Set on a crumbling country estate, Uncle Vanya is the tale of two obsessive love affairs that lead nowhere, and a flirtation that brings disaster. The irascible Vanya and his niece Sonya have managed the estate on behalf of their relative, a renowned Professor for the last twenty-five years. Now retired, the Professor and his beautiful young wife come to visit, throwing the household into disarray, igniting hidden passions and old grudges. Family ties are tested further when the ageing and gout-ridden Professor announces his plans to sell the estate and live off the proceeds in the city. By turns comic, tragic, romantic, and wistful, Chekhov's play is an unforgettable study of unfulfilled dreams and unrequited love. One of his four great masterpieces written on the eve of the twentieth century, it features a feast of subtle comic portraits of a family at logger heads with each other and the world around them, that still has resonance at the start of another new century.

Commentaires : Toby Jones and Richard Armitage in a revival of Uncle Vanya at the Harold Pinter Theatre. The production will feature a new adaptation of Anton Chekhov's original text by Conor McPherson.
"It's an honour to present a new translation of Anton Chekhov's masterpiece, Uncle Vanya, one of the most influential plays ever written. The river of classic plays which flow from its spring, acknowledged by Eugene O'Neill, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller and Brian Friel to name a few, is a monumental testament to its enduring power. And it shows no sign of abating. Chekhov's portrayal of how the rituals of our daily existence can be blindsided by thwarted desire continues to fascinate playwrights and audiences alike. Touching off that energy has been a personal privilege and I'm hugely excited to see this production come to life." Conor McPherson
