UNCLE VANYA by Anton Chekhov in a version by Brian Friel directed by Joe Dowling September 14-October 27, 2013 Wurtele Thrust Stage
Nearly 25 years since the Guthrie's last staging of what Irish Theatre Magazine has called "Chekhov's greatest play," Joe Dowling directs Chekhov's classic with a new adaptation by renowned Irish playwright Brian Friel.
Vanya and his niece Sonya work their small country estate, living frugally and keeping their emotions tightly reined in. The return of Vanya’s brother-in-law with his beautiful second wife Elena unlocks hidden passions as the entire family is turned upside down. Tea, wine and vodka fuel the tensions in this tragicomic story about unrequited love, thwarted ambition and enduring hope.
