Uncle Vanya
By Anton Chekhov
Translated by Mike Poulton
Directed by Kathryn MacMillan
October 21 - November 21, 2010

Lantern Theater Company celebrates the 150th anniversary of Chekhov's birth with a fresh production of Uncle Vanya that is bursting with passion and fierce humor. Vanya and his niece Sonya have toiled for years to keep the family estate going. When Sonya's father, the retired Professor Serebryakov, and his dazzling young wife Yelena return for a visit, all work comes to a halt. Old resentments explode into arguments and secret longings come to light. Don't miss this rare opportunity to enter the provocative, tragicomic world of Chekhov's Russia.

"Kathryn MacMillan's production...makes the classic fresh, as if it were newly plucked from some bush that blossoms with plays. The reason Lantern's production unspools so satisfyingly is the purring onstage machinery we can't really discern - its ensemble acting." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A lively and gripping production that brings welcome dimensions to this classic about choices and regrets." –Talkin' Broadway

"A lot happens in the four-act play, but little changes - but under Kathryn MacMillan's direction in a powerfully affecting production by Lantern Theater Company, inertia has never been so involving."

"A comedy that breaks the heart. Good Chekhov doesn't come along every day. The Lantern's production is well worth a visit." –Broad Street Review

"A reflective and superbly performed production of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya." –Stage Magazine
