Critically acclaimed theater company The New American Theatre is back with a fresh take on Anton Chekhov's masterpiece "Uncle Vanya", a play about hope, courage and taking care of Mother Earth. “Uncle Vanya is the perfect play at the perfect time. It speaks to us on a personal as well as a global scale,” says director Jack Stehlin. “Chekhov was essentially an optimist, writing through his characters that life has value and encouraging us to have hope and the courage to fight against our worst inclinations in order to save ourselves and our planet.” Vanya and his niece Sonya toil over their country estate, sending most of the proceeds to Sonya’s city-dwelling father Alexander, a renowned professor. When the professor retires and returns home with his much younger second wife Yelena, hidden resentments and passions are uncovered, and the future of the family and estate are threatened. Country doctor and environmentalist Astrov adds to the upheaval with his dire warnings about the destructive human impact on the earth and to each other.
