Minor Character: Six Translations of Uncle Vanya at the Same Time
directed by Morgan Green
New Saloon presents MINOR CHARACTER, a kaleidoscopic adaptation of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. A cast of 15 performers collage a century's worth of English translations - from the flowery 1916 version to Google Translate's profoundly nonsensical rendition - into one sprawling, intimate, quietly disastrous evening. Identity is plural. Communication is an athletic feat. Failure is inevitable. We are betrayed by language in the moments we most need it.
