When the country went into lockdown in March, Uncle Vanya was in the final weeks of a sold-out run and had received numerous Olivier nominations including the Best Actor Award for Toby Jones and Best Director Award for Ian Rickson. It will be the first UK theatre production which was closed by the Coronavirus pandemic to have been filmed and produced for the screen which is a huge achievement.
This ‘sumptuous reimagining’ of Chekhov’s classic has an even greater resonance following the country’s lockdown, where a conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, and each other, while living on an isolated estate. The filmed version of the play will include the special moment when the cast reunite at the theatre for the filming, the first time since lockdown in mid-March.
