Chekov’s eminent comedy, Uncle Vanya, returns to the West End this autumn.

Running from 24th October to 16th February at the Vaudeville Theatre, the production will star Ken Stott (Messiah, One Day, A View From The Bridge), Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies, Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and Samuel West (Enron, Howards End); onstage together for the first time.


Vanya (Ken Stott), Yelena (Anna Friel), Astrov (Samuel West) and Sonya are all in love, with the past, with ideals and with each other. As their universe shifts around them they struggle to keep their emotions at bay in this comedy about the trials and tribulations of the human condition.

Directed by Lindsay Posner with designs by Christopher Oram, this new production is from the producers of All my Sons and Long Day's Journey into Night.
