Uncle Vanya At The Cultch December 23 to January 14

23 Dec


Blackbird Theatre presents Uncle Vanya at The Cultch, 1895 Venables Street starting December 23rd.  This is classical theatre with Anton Chekhov’s heart-wrenching 19th century masterwork rich in improbable love, yearning and folly. The play portrays the visit of an elderly professor and his glamorous, much younger second wife, Yeléna, to the rural estate that supports their urban lifestyle. Two friends, Vanya, brother of the Professor’s late first wife, who has long managed the estate, and Astrov, the local Doctor, both fall under Yelena’s spell. 

Blackbird Theatre has received multiple Jessie awards and nominations since 2006 so you can be assured of a great performance.  Tickets start at $17. The show runs until January 14, 2014 with post show talkbacks on Dececember 29, January 1, 5, 8, 12, 15, 2014.
