Uncle Vanya

By Anton Chekhov Adapted by Annie Baker

Paperback £14.99

Annie Baker, one of the most celebrated playwrights in the United States, lends her truthful observation and elegant command of the colloquial to Anton Chekhov's despairing masterpiece Uncle Vanya.

A critical hit in its sold-out Off-Broadway premiere, Baker's version is a refreshingly intimate and modern treatment of a Chekhovian classic.

Press Quotes

'Superior to any other Uncle Vanya I've read or seen... Baker practices astonishing verbal magic over and over again.'

Paris Review

'Strikingly intimate... Free of the stilted or formal locutions that clutter up some of the more antique-sounding translations... Ms. Baker has given the play a natural but distinctly contemporary American sound.'

Charles Isherwood - New York Times

'Devastatingly beautiful... People are going to be talking about this one for years.'

Village Voice

'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.'
