Uncle Vanya Tickets
A visionary Vanya for modern timesToby 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.

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.
