Eagle Project and Double Down to Present 'UNCLE ABRAM' at New Perspectives Theatre
Eagle Project and Double Down Productions presents Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov, based on the translation by Marian Fell.
Uncle Abram - A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya is an American retelling of the Russian classic set in the Reconstruction South. Placed in a former plantation in south-central Missouri, this adaptation combines Native American and African American influences that both heighten and intensify the original Chekhovian text.
The backdrop being one of the most progressive periods in American history instills a hope of what is possible, along with the awareness of the delicacy of social progress.
Uncle Abram - A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya awakens our spirit for a better tomorrow, and tests our fortitude by begging the question, "What are you willing to sacrifice to change the world?"
