Running time: approximately 2 hours and 25 minutes, including one intermission

Sonia (Alison Pill) and her uncle Vanya (Steve Carell) have devoted their lives to managing the family farm in isolation, but when her celebrated, ailing father (Alfred Molina), his charismatic wife (Anika Noni Rose), and the local doctor (Tony® nominee William Jackson Harper) visit, their lives are upended. In the heat of the summer, the wrong people fall in love, desires and resentments erupt, and the family is forced to reckon with the ghosts of their unlived lives.

Director Lila Neugebauer and playwright Heidi Schreck collaborate on the premiere of this Lincoln Center Theater production of UNCLE VANYA, which pairs Chekhov's enduring masterpiece with one of America's most celebrated contemporary playwrights in a strikingly immediate new translation.

This sleek, lucid and gorgeous revival offers a hundred things to enjoy. It is a lovely evening in the theater.
