A Threshold Repertory Production
written by Anton Chekhov
a new version by Annie Baker
Directed by Jay Danner
This intimate, immersive new adaptation of Chekhov’s classic from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker – author of Body Awareness, Circle Mirror Transformation, and The Flick – brings colloquial language to this internationally beloved story of human relationships and yearning. Written with the “goal of creating a version that sounds to our contemporary American ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears during the play’s first productions in the provinces in 1898,” Annie Baker’s Uncle Vanya introduces twenty-first century audiences to Chekhov’s enduring wit, insight, and emotionl depth.
