Uncle Vanya is a play that tells the story of the title character, Uncle Vanya, and his niece, Sonya, who live a life of solitude managing Sonya's father's rural Russian farm — until Sonya's father and wife move in and disrupt their isolation. Tensions run high as all the characters grapple with unrequited love, the passage of time, and unrealized dreams.
Uncle Vanya is one of Chekhov's most well-known plays. The play, which originally premiered in 1899 at the Moscow Art Theatre, has stood the test of time through many revivals and translations. The 2024 production is Uncle Vanya's 11th Broadway run— the most recent revival in 2000, starring Laura Linney, Derek Jacobi, and Brian Murray, was nominated for two Tony Awards, and a 1974 revival was nominated for three.
The new Uncle Vanya revival features a similarly critically acclaimed creative team. Schreck is best known for writing and starring in What the Constitution Means to Me on Broadway, and Neugebauer's Broadway production of The Waverly Gallery was nominated for the Best Revival of a Play Tony Award.
