Inside the rehearsal room

It’s been a busy few weeks with UNCLE VANYA rehearsals in full swing, SUNSHINE packing out houses and finalising our 2017 Season. Next year is looking full of remarkable, riveting new plays that we cannot wait to announce. We would love to see you at the launch on November 28th to celebrate! Save the date in your diaries now.

The UNCLE VANYA cast, creatives and crew are deep in rehearsals. We’re already so excited about the work they’re creating and this special adaptation by Annie Baker. Director, Nadia Tass is no stranger to Annie Baker’s oeuvre, having directed our acclaimed productions of The Flick and The Aliens.

Baker set out to adapt this beloved classic with the “goal of creating a version that sounds to our contemporary American ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears during the play’s first productions in the provinces in 1898”.

Here’s your sneak peek into their rehearsal room:
