Not Uncle Vanya, but Vanya. Chekhov’s play gets a makeover by Simon Stephens in a version in which Andrew Scott plays all the characters we know from Chekhov’s play with all their conflicting dreams and messy emotions. Stephens and Scott have got form togther, previously working on the sublime Seawall and Birdland. So this should be quite something. Particularly because Stephens has already written incisive versions of The Seagull and The Cherry Orchard. The show transfers to The Duke of York’s Theatre in mid-September and is directed by Sam Yates, who is a director who brings clarity and insight to everything he does.

About Vanya

Comedic and tragic, Chekhov’s examination of our shared humanity – our hopes, dreams, regrets – is thrust into sharp focus in Vanya. This production explores the kaleidoscope of human emotions, harnessing the power of the intimate bond between actor and audience to delve deeper into the human psyche.
