Uncle Vanya

Arts & Theater

Join One Year Chekhov for a radical new take on Uncle Vanya, led by actors and fueled by live music. Expect the unexpected with gender fluid casting, spontaneous moments of theatricality, and a story that feels right at home in contemporary Chicago. Come laugh, cry, and toast with us to a play that gets inside you and doesn't let go.

One Year Chekov's mission is to provide access and opportunity to all actors of our Chicago community, cultivating an explorative playing ground that supports risk-taking. Our brief, immersive rehearsal process results in an open workshop of a play that will never be finished. The process is rooted equally in philosophizing over meals as it is in textwork, improv, and action. We come together for five days to rehearse, during which actors are empowered to interpret the text individually and make their own choices with minimal direction. Our process distills Chekhov's works to their core message: the need for connection and humanity in the face of the melancholy that stalks us all.
