Chekhov’s play of tangled and tragic love combines comic observations of everyday life with a scathing attack on idle provincial life of the upper classes in czarist Russia. In the hands of the Maly Drama Theatre’s fine ensemble this production revels in authentic Russian spirit. The company has developed an unparalled reputation for the greatest acting in the world. Sergey Kuryshev, whom you may remember from his outstanding performance in Platonov in BITE:99, plays Chekhov’s anti-hero Vanya. In Russian with English surtitles.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
