Hampstead Theatre announces new Uncle Vanya adaptation

Published 28 September 2018

The Hampstead Theatre today have announced a new version of Anton Chekhov’s classic tragicomedy Uncle Vanya by Terry Johnson.

Olivier and Tony Award-winner Terry Johnson returns to Hampstead following his critically acclaimed hit Prism starring Robert Lindsay and Hysteria starring Antony Sher. He adapts the classic play Uncle Vanya, charged with the Russian master’s wit and his acute observation of the comic absurdity of human life.

Uncle Vanya will run from 30 November – 12 January 2019, telling the story of Sonia and her uncle, whose lives are thrown into confusion when Sonia’s father and his stunning second wife Yeliena burst onto the scene.

In the Downstairs theatre, Ifeyinwa Frederick makes her playwriting debut with The Hoes, which will have its world premiere next month. The show is a riotous celebration of sisterhood, showing that while life may throw up unexpected turbulence, friendships will last the course.

The cast was today revealed to be Aretha Ayeh, Marième Diouf, and Nicola Maisie Taylor. The Hoes will be directed by Lakesha Arie-Angelo.

More information about both productions can be found on the Hampstead Theatre website.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
