Anton Chekhov’s foray into the life of an elderly professor and his glamourous much younger second wife, Yelena. Enter Uncle Vanya – brother of the professor’s first wife – and Astrov – the local doctor, as they bemoan their local, boring existence. A true masterpiece of classical writing, the play commences when a sudden change of heart becomes apparent and the characters must live with its eventual outcome and ongoing fascination with the young at heart Yelena.
