Uncle Vanya
Thursday 3rd October, 7.30pm

Theatrical Niche return to Stantonbury Theatre to present 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 Uncle Vanya himself hits a palpable boiling point.

Theatrical Niche's acclaimed physical theatre team collaborate with international artist Lily Hunter Green, creating a unique showcase of art intertwined with this Russian masterpiece of desperation and the undeniable need for affection, at all costs.

Director Nadia Papachronopoulou and Artist Lily Hunter Green infuse this production with an examination of contagion and the 'Hive Mind'. The violent spread of discontent onstage mirrors the decline of the Bee. Art & Physical Theatre draw parallels between the hapless protagonists and our neglected countryside population: what happens when you don't look after the workers?

This production is in partnership with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, and will be spreading awareness for their cause during the tour (as well as collecting on their behalf after shows).

Tickets £15 – concessions £13
