The Daily Telegraph calls Uncle Vanya "a triumph. It respects the poignancy of Chekhov's gloriously spare writing and simultaneously revels in the sometimes farcical, often brutal humor…. Each of the performances are excellent." Directed by renowned Chekhov interpreter Tamás Ascher and with a stellar cast including John Bell, Cate Blanchett, Sandy Gore, Hayley McElhinney, Anthony Phelan, Richard Roxburgh, Andrew Tighe, Jacki Weaver, and Hugo Weaving, Uncle Vanya promises to be the can't-miss theater event of the year.
