UNCLE VANYA

By Anton Chekhov

Translated by Richard Nelson, Richard Pevear, and Larissa Volokhonsky

Directed by Richard Nelson

Featuring Celeste Arias, Jon DeVries, Kate Kearney-Patch, Roberta Maxwell, Jesse Pennington, Jay O. Sanders, and Yvonne Woods

“Lovers of Chekhov have cause for celebration: This is one of the most exquisite renderings of Uncle Vanya

I’ve encountered, a heartbreaking reading of the play that retains just enough

of the original’s sly humor to be truly Chekhovian.”

– Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

“It has taken a playwright to show us how Chekhov can be staged today.

Nelson’s strengths as a director lead him to the heart of what makes Vanya

such an enduring work of dramatic literature.”

– Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
