Photo Flash: The Old Globe presents UNCLE VANYA by Anton Chekhov

An exhilarating revival that pairs one of the greatest plays ever written with the world's most celebrated translators of Russian literature. Vanya and his niece Sonya struggle to care for the estate owned byVanya's brother-in-law, a wealthy and celebrated professor.

When this local legend returns with a beautiful new wife and announces his plans to sell the estate, hidden passions explode and the lives of the entire family come undone. This Globe-commissioned world premiere translation, performed in an unusually intimate and conversational style, provides an up-close encounter with a classic of world drama that every theatre-lover must see.
