About the Play:

Uncle Vanya is a full-length dramatic comedy by Anton Chekhov, adapted by David Mamet from the literal translation by Vlada Chernomirdik. On the crumbling estate of a retired professor and his beautiful young wife, a tangled web of desire emerges to consume various friends and family members who have sought refuge there

Uncle Vanya is a classic masterpiece that imparts an indelible picture of Chekhov's Russia and of his rich, bittersweet and deeply human characters in a sparkling restoration for the modern stage. Serebryakov, a retired professor and his bewitching second wife, Yelena, return to his country estate left by his deceased first wife. His daughter, Sonya, and former brother-in-law Vanya, have selflessly dedicated themselves to maintain his wealth. However, Vanya now scorns the professor and covets his wife. Astrov, the melancholy family doctor, becomes the object of both Sonya's and Yelena's affection. While the professor announces his intention to sell the estate, Vanya realizes the extent of his wasted life and attempts to shoot the professor and himself. After Yelena and Serebryakov leave the estate, Sonya encourages her uncle to find faith and solace in their work.

The David Mamet adaptation of Uncle Vanya premiered in 1988 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Cast: 4 women, 5 men
