September 19 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Uncle Vanya, by Anton Chekov: Translated by Richard Nelson, Richard Pevear, and Larissa Volokhonsky. Directed by Adam Knight.
“This is as naked and fully human an Uncle Vanya as we’re likely to see” (NYTimes).
Anton Chekhov’s “comedy” tells the story of Vanya and his niece Sonya, who devoted their rural lives to support the academic work of Sonya’s father, a retired professor. But when the professor’s new, young wife appears on the scene, bucolic harmony is thrown into discord. A new version by celebrated playwright Richard Nelson and preeminent Russian translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.
Show runs September 13-October 6, 2019 at Riverside Theatre. Show times are Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:00 pm. Tickets
