Welcome back to Storyhouse. We put customer safety at the top of everything we do, however at this time that means a little more than making sure you don’t get struck inadvertently by an actor! It now also means keeping 2 metres apart and wearing a face covering whilst in the building, except when eating or drinking. We will be asking all our customer to both enjoy themselves and to stick to some easy to follow guidelines. Find out how we’re keeping you safe here.

Following its critically acclaimed opening in London earlier this year, Sonia Friedman Productions’ stunning 5-star production Uncle Vanya, a new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece by Conor McPherson directed by Ian Rickson, was abruptly halted as the world went into lockdown.

Now, as the majority of theatres across the world remain in darkness, Uncle Vanya’s exquisite ensemble overcome the considerable challenges of working in a global pandemic, returning to the Harold Pinter Theatre to film the ‘perfect’ (★★★★★ The Guardian) production, which is currently nominated for four Olivier Awards.

Marrying the intimacy of the screen with the electricity of live performance in an exciting new hybrid of film and theatre, this Sonia Friedman Productions/Angelica Films co-production is far more than simply a capture of the play. Full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future, Uncle Vanya is a must-see event for our times.

An exquisite production. Perfection.
Toby Jones is superb in Chekhov’s great tragicomedy.
A superlative company achievement – most of us will be lucky if we see a better cast in our lifetimes.
This is a Vanya for our times.
Ian Rickson’s striking revival. Such compassion, such life.
