Dallas Actor's Lab presents

Uncle Vanya

February 5 – 22, 2015


Written by Anton Chekhov
Adapted by Annie Baker
Working with a literal translation by Margarita Shalina and the original Russian text

This intimate, immersive new adaptation of Chekhov’s classic from critically-acclaimed playwright Annie Baker, author of Body Awareness, Mirror Circle Transformation and The Flick, brings colloquial language to this internationally beloved story of human relationships and yearning. Written with the “goal of creating a version that sounds to our contemporary American ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears during the play’s first productions in the provinces in 1898”, Ms. Baker’s Uncle Vanya introduces 21st century audiences to Chekhov’s enduring wit, insight and emotional depth.

Winner 2013 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Revival of a Play
