Uncle Vanya comes to the Harold Pinter Theatre from 14 January In the heat of summer, Sonya and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their days on a crumbling estate deep in the countryside, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage).
“This play has a fantastic cast & creative team. It's directed by the legendary Ian Rickson, BAFTA & Olivier Award-winner Toby Jones is playing Uncle Vanya and Richard Armitage is returning to the stage for the first time since his Olivier-nominated role in The Crucible to play Astrov. It's also composed by Stephen Warbeck (who won an Oscar for his score for Shakespeare in Love) and it is adapted by Conor McPherson (who wrote Girl from The North Country). If all of these elements combined don't make for a stellar show then we will eat our collective hats.”
Olivier Award-winner Conor McPherson’s stunning new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece, Uncle Vanya, is a portrayal of life at the turn of the 20th Century, full of tumultuous frustration, dark humour and hidden passions.
Critically acclaimed director Ian Rickson returns to Chekhov for the first time since his landmark production of The Seagull in 2007, reuniting with BAFTA and Olivier Award-winner Toby Jones (The Birthday Party) alongside Richard Armitage, who returns to the UK stage six years after his Olivier
Award-nominated performance in The Crucible.
