If you miss the theater – choose the best!
A play-legend of the theater on Podil, which has fascinated the audience for more than 15 years.
A play that opens the door to the incomprehensible world of prose genius.
A performance for which the best company will be a cup of tea.
Almost 300 films have been made based on his works. Born a serf, he renounced the title of nobleman, and rejected the title of academician as unnecessary. He adored his wife, although their relationship survived through correspondence. He could recognize a suicide by pretending to be fun, collecting stamps and writing down funny names. Anyone who knew how to love people learned to tell tragedies over a cup of tea. He changed the world of drama by writing his name in history forever.
He is Anton Chekhov.
About the play:
This is a psychologically masterful play about the death of love and hope, the illusory nature of human happiness.
True admirers of A. Chekhov’s art, who subtly feel the atmosphere of his works and are familiar firsthand with his characters, will feel especially at home with “Uncle Vanya”. He is one of the few today who preserved the primordial essence of the world of drama, created by the author according to the laws of immortality, whose name is love.
