directed by John Knauss
An elderly professor and his beautiful young wife retire to a remote country estate left by his deceased first wife to find themselves confronting the brooding figure of the professor's brother-in-law and estate manager, Uncle Vanya. In a desperate attempt to allay their upper-class ennui, the large estate's colorful cast indulges in secret affections, heated quarrels, and late-night drinking. Uncovering the fervency of the original Russian text, this modern translation presents a masterpiece of world drama with vibrancy, depth, and humor to modern audiences.
