Feeding an increasing appetite for international theatre in London, with extended seasons of Russian Ballet at the Coliseum and a growing number of foreign language productions in the West End, UNCLE VANYA & THREE SISTERS will be performed in their original Russian with English surtitles.
Andrei Konchalovsky has utilized the same setting and cast for both productions, drawing on the striking similarities between Checkov's two most celebrated plays.
Speaking about transferring both productions to London Andrei Konchalovsky said "I am delighted to bringing these two Russian productions to London's West End. No matter how many times you appeal to Chekhov, he is inexhaustible. Every time his work is seen on stage, you find something unnoticed, unexperienced and undiscovered"
