The Department of Theatre & Dance presents presents Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece Uncle Vanya, directed and adapted in a new version by faculty member Joel Grothe

Originally produced in 1899, this classic play tells the story of the Voynitsky family living on a countryside estate and dealing with major political and social upheavals in Russia around the turn of the 20th century. Grothe's adaptation moves the action to Louisiana and examines the incredible cultural dichotomy of the region.

Filled with humor, hope and loss, Uncle Vanya has been translated and adapted thousands of times since its premiere and is widely considered one of the greatest plays of modern theatre.
