Jessica Brown Findlay (Sonya), Vanessa Kirby (Elena), Richard Lumsden (Telegin), Hilton McRae (Serebryakov), Tobias Menzies (Astrov), Ann Queensberry (Nanny) and Susan Wooldridge (Maria) join the previously announced Paul Rhys (Vanya) in Chekhov's UNCLE VANYA, a new version created by and directed by Associate Director, Robert Icke, at the Almeida Theatre. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

Running from 5 February until 26 March 2016, with press night on 12 February, UNCLE VANYA is Icke's next production following the critically acclaimed ORESTEIA, which ran at the Almeida Theatre, transferred to the West End, and recently won him the Evening Standard Award for Best Director.

Things your life could be: (1) a farce. (2) a tragedy. (3) pointless. (4) all of the above. Things you could do about it: (1) keep living. (2) stop living. (3) stop someone else living. (4) nothing. Even so, what has your life been worth? Chekhov's late masterpiece examines human behaviour in all of its beautiful, terrible, laughable contradiction.

UNCLE VANYA runs at the Almeida Theatre, Almeida Street, London, N1 1TA. To book tickets, phone 020 7359 4404 (10am - 7.30pm Monday - Saturday), go online at almeida.co.uk, or visit in person 10am - 7.30pm, Monday - Saturday (10am - 8pm until 14 November).
