About Uncle Vanya

Portraying life at the turn of the twentieth century, don’t miss Conor McPherson’s refreshing adaptation of Uncle Vanya at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Directed by Ian Rickson, experience Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece in a stunning, new light filled with dark humour and hidden passions.


Toby Jones plays the titular role, recently starring in a quartet of new Caryl Churchill plays titled Glass. Kill. Bluebeard. Imp at the Royal Court Theatre. Winning an Olivier Award for his performance in The Play What I Wrote, Jones has also starred in The Birthday Party at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Richard Armitage returns to the West End for the first time in six years to star as Astrov. The Olivier Award-nominated actor received a nomination for his performance as John Proctor in The Crucible at the Old Vic.

Ciarán Hinds plays Professor Serebryakov, with theatre credits including Girl From The North Country and The Night Alive. He is joined by Rosalind Eleazar as Yelena, previously starring in The Starry Messenger and Aimee Lou Wood as Sonya.

The cast is completed by Anna Calder Marshall as Nana, Deabhla Molloy as Grandmaman and Peter Wight as Telegin.

What's the story?

In the heat of summer, Sonya and her Uncle Vanya spend their days on a crumbling estate deep in the countryside. Regularly visited by their local doctor Astrov, the trio often exchange pleasantries. But, when Sonya’s father returns to the estate with a new wife, polite facades crumble and repressed feelings start to emerge with devastating consequences.
