Glassbox Theatre presents Uncle Vanya
November 7, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Glassbox Theatre presents a new adaptation by Venetia Twigg; a production suitable for ages 12+.
Chekhov’s tragicomedy in a bittersweet, multi-disciplinary new adaptation. Isolated and seemingly beyond help, the weary inhabitants of one country household plunge head over heels in lust when a beautiful stranger arrives.
As the owner announces the estate sale for his own gain, the strains of repression and a chaste rural life begin to bubble among the hard-working occupants, until Vanya himself hits a palpable boiling point.
This is a theatrical production creating a unique showcase of art intertwined with this Russian masterpiece of desperation and the undeniable need for affection, at all costs. Experience Chekhov’s witty observations on the irrational human heart. The utter bedlam underlying these characters is brought to bear in captivating physical theatre. This modern take on Uncle Vanya highlights the farcical nature of the text whilst showcasing some of London’s finest talent.
Tickets are priced from £8 to £12 and can be booked here.
The Glassbox Theatre is located at Mid Kent College in Medway Road, Gillingham ME7 1FN.
