City Theatre Austin will kick off the 2018 season with acclaimed playwright Anton Chekhov’s masterful play, Uncle Vanya.

Uncle Vanya is Chekhov’s most cherished work of hope, love, and loss. When a retired professor and his beautiful young wife are forced to withdraw to an estate in the vast country emptiness, their arrival explode hidden passions and the lives of the entire family come undone. Shattered illusions, deep secrets, and the desire for love run through the acclaimed play, which has been staged in theatres for over 100 years.

Both joyously comic and poignantly tragic, this newly adapted interpretation by Rod Mechem, captures all of Chekhov’s dynamic characters, each struggling to find a life of meaning and happiness.
