Cut off in its prime in March, Ian Rickson’s Uncle Vanya returns to us from an empty theatre, filmed for cinema release.
Tickets are now on sale for theUK, Ireland and international cinema screenings of Ian Rickson’s highly-acclaimed production of Conor McPherson’s new adaptation of Uncle Vanya, starring Toby Jones and Richard Armitage.
Sonia Friedman Productions has announced that Ian Rickson’s highly-acclaimed production of Conor McPherson’s new adaptation of Uncle Vanya, forced to close in March when the West End went into lockdown, has been filmed on stage at the Harold Pinter Theatre in partnership with Angelica Films.
The Stage has announced the award-winning & Juliet actress Miriam-Teak Lee will host this year’s The Stage Debut Awards, in association with Access Entertainment.
Wendell Pierce, Robbie Williams, David Mitchell, Aimee Lou Wood and the stars of West End musical Dear Evan Hansen are among the nominees for The Stage Debut Awards 2020, in association with Access Entertainment.
Conor McPherson’s adaptation of Uncle Vanya featuring Toby Jones and Richard Armitage at the Harold Pinter Theatre is so good you can forgive the “wanging on”.
This Uncle Vanya is more roundedly entertaining than other recent productions and while that detracts a little from the emotional undercurrents of the original, the fluidity and richness of Rickson’s production, performed by an excellent cast, ensure a satisfying Chekhovian conclusion.
