Romantic entanglements upset life on a rural Russian estate in Chekhov's masterpiece of unrequited love, thwarted ambition and regret. At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Uncle Vanya
centers on a professor who moves back into his rural home with his new, young wife, disturbing the quiet lives of everyone in the household. This adaptation by Brian Friel (Faith Healer
, Dancing at Lughnasa
) was praised by the U.K.'s Telegraph
, which noted that "Friel is often described as the 'Irish Chekhov' -- here that keen artistic kinship is unmissable." Modern audiences will recognize in this enduring play themes that still resonate, including economic upheaval, environmental concerns and relationship complications.
