adapted by Simon Stephens, after Anton Chekhov
directed by Sam Yates
designed by Rosanna Vize
Andrew Scott (Fleabag) brings multiple characters to life in Simon Stephens’s (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.

15. No one younger than 15 may see a 15 film in the cinema.
This recording of a solo stage play reworking of Chekhov’s tragicomedy Uncle Vanya relocates the action to a 20th century Irish farm, and the wry comic tone alternating with scenes of pathos includes some strong language.
“Andrew Scott’s one-man Chekhov is the performance of the year.”
