In this classic of Chekhov’s canon, an overbearing professor pays a visit to his country estate, where Sonya and Vanya, his daughter and former brother-in-law, have slaved to maintain his wealth. But Vanya is enchanted by the professor’s new wife, while Sonya has fallen for the town’s melancholy doctor. Adapted by David Mamet.
Includes a conversation with Rosamund Bartlett, author of Chekhov: Scenes from a Life.
