Crow's Theatre presents Uncle Vanya
In the waning days of Czarist Russia, Ivan “Vanya” Voinitsky, and his niece, Sonya, toil ceaselessly to run their family estate. After retiring, Sonya’s father, a celebrated professor, returns to the estate with his young, glamourous wife. When he announces his plans to sell the land and evict them all, passions explode and lives come undone.
A dazzling cast, led by the incomparable Tom Rooney as Vanya, breathes new life into Chekhov’s masterpiece in a new adaptation by Liisa Repo-Martell. Brimming with emotional intensity, comedic genius, and tragic weight, this Crow’s Theatre commission and world-premiere adaptation provides an up-close encounter with a classic of world drama that every theatre lover must see.
Directed by Crow’s Theatre Artistic Director Chris Abraham, UNCLE VANYA reunites the creative team from The Seagull, the 2017 smash-hit co-production with Canadian Stage and The Company Theatre.
