Vanya: Official Trailer - In Cinemas 22 February | National Theatre Live


Most of us will live unfulfilled lives: This brutal and eternal truth has accounted for the enduring appeal of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya since it was first staged by Konstantin Stanislavski in Moscow in 1899. An ambitious new adaptation of this bleakly funny play looks to tease out its essence by stripping it down to its barest elements. Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Fleabag) gives a superhuman turn by playing all eight roles. Hopes, dreams and regrets are thrust into sharp focus in this one-man adaptation which explores the complexities of human emotions. Comedic and tragic, Chekhov's examination of our shared humanity was filmed live during its sold-out West End run.

Runtime 1h40m
