Synopsis

Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) whileaway their time on an isolated estate, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage). However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Roger Allam) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar), polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge.


Following its critically acclaimed opening in London in 2020, Sonia Friedman Productions’ stunning 5-star production Uncle Vanya, a new adaptation of theAnton Chekhovmasterpiece by Conor McPhersondirected by Ian Rickson,was abruptly halted as the world went into lockdown. As many theatres across the world remainedin darkness, Uncle Vanya’sexquisite ensemble overcame the considerable challenges of working in a global pandemic, returning to the Harold Pinter Theatre to film the ‘perfect’ (★★★★★The Guardian) production. Marrying the intimacy of the screen with the electricity of live performance in an exciting new hybrid of film and theatre, this Sonia Friedman Productions/Angelica Filmsco-production is far more than simply a capture of the play. Full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future, Uncle Vanyais a must-see event for our times
