Uncle Vanya Tickets

A visionary Vanya for modern times

Toby Jones and Richard Armitage return to the West End to star in Conor McPherson's powerful adaptation of one of Chekhov’s best-known classics. Directed by Ian Rickson, Uncle Vanya tickets will transport you to a rural country estate for a darkly funny play about family, love and power.

Vanya and his niece Sonya have been looking after the family estate for years, living in solitude save for occasional visits from the local doctor, Astrov. But their quiet lives are upended when Sonya’s father arrives with his glamorous new wife Yelena. The urban and rural dwellers are soon tangled in a web of unrequited love and complicated family ties.

Toby Jones plays Vanya in this new production. A prolific actor of both stage and screen, his credits include the Olivier Award-winning The Play What I Wrote (2001) and Witness for the Prosecution (BBC, 2016). Richard Armitage co-stars as Astrov. He was last seen on-stage in The Crucible at the Old Vic Theatre and is best known as Thorin in The Hobbit film franchise.

With a stellar cast breathing new life into Chekhov’s masterpiece, Uncle Vanya plays at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Performance dates: 14 Jan 2020 - 02 May 2020

Loved this adaptation. Laugh out loud funny at times, superb acting from all of the cast with the tide of despair coming through so overwhelmingly that at the end some audience members around me were crying. Don’t miss!

Beautifully staged and directed, this is a mesmerising production with a solid cast who all give exceptional performances. The lighting and music as well really give the play and staging another dimension. This play should definitely be high on your list of things to see.

I really enjoyed this show. The set was GORGEOUS yet simple so I was impressed from the start. The actors were all excellent and I was entertained throughout. My only issue is that the first act and the second act don’t seem to marry very well. I found myself laughing every other minute for act 1 and then act 2 felt very downbeat very quickly. But that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it still, it just left me feeling a bit short changed when I arrived after the interval ready to laugh again. Highly recommend seeing this play.

This was a very 'light' version of Uncle Vanya with a great cast including Richard Armitage and Toby Jones. Wonderful direction and the acting was very good. I saw it in preview and have to say the performances were very polished. It deserves to do well in the West End.

Surprisingly funny, very earthy Chekhov in a new adaptation by Conor McPherson. The two leads were spectacular. A massive part of the enjoyment also came from the opulent stage set that kept me engaged.
