Uncle VanyaFour revivals of Uncle Vanya have come to theatres in and around London in 2012 but this small six-day production at the Noel Coward Theatre is perhaps the most unique in that it is entirely performed in Russian (with English surtitles, thankfully). With the award-winning Vakhtangov theatre company, director Rimas Tuminas presents a novel take on Anton Chekhov's masterpiece, which highlights the passion and poetry in the drama while exporting the tale out of the Russian country estate setting of the Chekhov original. Uncle Vanya, a ribald study of ennui that blends zesty wit and earthly humour, is one of the most celebrated comedic studies of the trials and tribulations of the human condition. The story deals with Yelena, the younger second wife of a professor, who entertains an eternally frustrated love triangle between two friends of her husband - Vanya, the brother of the professor's late first wife, and the local doctor, Astrov (who himself has inadvertently rendered the professor's daughter completely smitten). This stunning modern interpretation of a timeless classic is part of the Russian Season in the West End international arts platform. It coincides with a more traditional version of Uncle Vanya taking part at the Vaudeville Theatre for four months this winter.




 

About Noel Coward Theatre

Built by the Wyndham family as a companion to the Wyndham's Theatre, the Noel Coward Theatre is a stately building. Originally named the 'New Theatre', it shook off its unimaginative and inaccurate name in on its 70th birthday and became the 'Albery'. More about Noel Coward Theatre
