This intimate, immersive new adaptation of Chekhov’s classic from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker, brings colloquial language to this internationally beloved story of human relationships and yearning. Two obsessive love affairs that lead nowhere and a flirtation that brings disaster. Mixing the tragic and the absurd and dealing with a form that allows for ambiguity and contradiction, Uncle Vanya has been deemed "the first modernist play." Annie Baker’s Uncle Vanya introduces twenty-first century audiences to Chekhov’s enduring wit, insight, and emotional depth.
