“How else should I look when I love you? You make me happy; you make me feel alive!” Uncle Vanya, Anton Chekhov
Vanya and his niece, Sonya, struggle to run the rural estate owned by Vanya’s brother-in-law, a wealthy and celebrated professor living in the city. When this local legend returns with a young, beautiful, and glamorous new wife and announces his plans to sell the land, passions explode and lives come undone.
A dazzling cast, led by the incomparable Tom Rooney, as Vanya breathes new life into Chekhov’s masterpiece in a new adaptation by Liisa Repo-Martell. Brimming with emotional intensity, comedic genius, and tragic weight, this Crow’s Theatre commission and world-premiere adaptation provides an up-close encounter with a classic of world drama that every theatre lover must see.
Directed by Crow’s Theatre Artistic Director Chris Abraham, UNCLE VANYA reunites the creative team from The Seagull, the 2017 smash-hit co-production with Canadian Stage.
