The spring season has been announced by the Print Room and of the three performances, I am going to get tickets to Uncle Vanya.
According to Print Room:
Iain Glen, hot on the heels from playing Downton Abbey’s nastiest newspaper mogul Sir Richard Carlisle, stars alongside Charlotte Emmerson and David Yelland in a brand new version of Chekhov’s masterpiece. Be sure to book early for this 2012 adaptation of Uncle Vanya – the most enduring masterpiece written by Russia’s greatest playwright Anton Chekhov.
This tragicomic, poignant story of frustrated longing and wasted lives continues to move and engage every succeeding generation. This will be a rare opportunity to experience this extraordinary play in the atmospheric and intimate Print Room theatre.
Lucy Bailey, the Co-Artistic Director of the Print Room, has directed three stunning productions in our opening year, Fabrication, Snake in the Grass, and Kingdom of Earth. She has recently directed Julius Caesar for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and her production of Taming of the Shrew opens in Stratford at the end of January.
