"Man will indiscriminately destroy the forest until there's nothing left. It's the same thing when you pick people apart and try to make sure that there there's no purity or self-sacrifice left in them."

Young Novocastrian's take on Russian classic.
Her Productions is VERY excited to be presenting Annie Baker's adaptation of Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov.
Set on a remote rural estate somewhere in Russia at some point during the late 19th century, tensions run high for a family trying to survive and retain their privileges.
As the characters struggle to come to terms with their fading youth, lost opportunities, yet to be determined futures, and an environmental crisis, Chekov dazzles us with his acute understanding of our timeless human contradictions, and questions our ability to change.
“Annie Baker’s colloquial version of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya is more than a modern-dress treatment of a classic work. It’s a fresh rethinking of the material from the perspective of a modern mind.”
