Sonia Friedman Productions has announced further casting for Conor McPherson’s new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s ‘Uncle Vanya‘, which plays a sixteen-week run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End from 14th January 2020.
Directed by Ian Rickson, the production stars the previously announced Toby Jones and Richard Armitage, alongside the newly announced Rosalind Eleazar, Aimee Lou Wood, Anna Calder-Marshall, Dearbhla Molloy, Peter Wight, and Ciarán Hinds.
In the heat of summer, Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their days on a crumbling estate deep in the countryside, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage).
However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Ciarán Hinds) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar) declaring his intention to sell the house, the polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge with devastating consequences.
