Following its critically acclaimed opening in London before it was shut down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonia Friedman Productions presents a stunning production of Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece Uncle Vanya. Made during the 2020 lockdown and filmed without an audience, the new adaptation was written by Conor McPherson and directed by Ian Rickson.
Sonya and her Uncle Vanya throw their lives into maintaining the crumbling family estate, only visited occasionally by the radical and inspiring local doctor Astrov. However, when Sonya’s father, Professor Serebryakov, suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena, long-hidden truths start to emerge.
Starring Toby Jones (Journey’s End, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Richard Armitage (Strike Back, The Hobbit franchise), Uncle Vanya is a stunning, powerful performance for our times which demands to be seen.
Dazzler Media presents Uncle Vanya on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital now (released June 14th 2021)
