Uncle Vanya - 2012 - West End

Ken Stott, Anna Friel and Samuel West are united together on stage for the first time in one of Anton Chekhov’s undisputed masterpieces, Uncle Vanya. Adapted by Christopher Hampton, Uncle Vanya uniquely blends sparkling wit and earthy humour to brilliant comic effect.



Vanya (Ken Stott), Yelena (Anna Friel), Astrov (Samuel West) and Sonya are all in love, with the past, with ideals and with each other. As their universe shifts around them they struggle to keep their emotions at bay in this exquisitely evoked comedy of the trials and tribulations of the human condition.
