Vanya and his niece Sonya doggedly devote their lives to managing the crumbling family farm visited occasionally by their idiosyncratic neighbor, Dr. Astrov. Then Sonya’s celebrated father and his restless, charismatic wife suddenly decide to move in, and everything falls apart as only the master ironist Anton Chekhov could foresee. The wrong people fall in love and lives unravel as the summer wanes. Opportunities evaporate and long hidden resentments come home to roost. How do you find what you’ve lost…and does it matter?
Directed by Clark Lewis in a unique and intimate setting, Uncle Vanya features a stellar cast of Sonoma County actors: John Craven, Bill Davis, Peter Downey, Mary Gannon Graham, Dale Leonheart, Sheila Lichirie, Ilana Niernberger and Jared Wright.
