National Theatre Live: Vanya


Offensive language

ADAPTED BY: Simon Stephens, after Anton Chekhov

DIRECTED BY: Sam Yates  

DESIGNED BY: Rosanna Vize

RUN TIME: 117 minutes

Andrew Scott (Fleabag) brings multiple characters to life in Simon Stephens’ (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) radical new version of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya.

Hopes, dreams, and regrets are thrust into sharp focus in this one-man adaptation which explores the complexities of human emotions.

Filmed live during its sold-out run in London’s West End, Vanya will be playing exclusively in cinemas in 2024.
