This new adaptation of Chekhov's classic tragicomedy, where a visit from a professor and his beautiful young wife turns one family's simple country life upside-down, is refreshing and full of nuanced humor. Long-suffering Uncle Vanya yearns for the professor's wife, Elena, a desire made even more painful by the realization that he has wasted his life serving her husband. Meanwhile, the professor's daughter longs for the doctor, who only has eyes for Elena. And, just when it seems that things couldn't go any more awry, the professor has an announcement that could change the lives of the entire household. This timeless study of human behavior and relationships remains relevant and modern.
