The disruptive presence of a “retired” university professor and his much-younger wife upsets the routine lives of the inhabitants of a rural Russian estate, causing polite facades to crumble and long repressed feelings to emerge with devastating consequences for everyone involved. Hot on the heels of its phenomenally successful production of Tennessee William’s “The Glass Menagerie”, Catskill’s acclaimed Bridge Street Theatre tackles yet another classic of dramatic literature, Anton Chekhov’s haunting “Uncle Vanya”. Irish playwright Conor McPherson provides a vibrant, earthy, and surprisingly comedic new adaptation of this most intimate and heartbreaking of Chekhov’s dramatic works, to be presented in BST’s 84-seat “Priscilla” Mainstage, located at 44 West Bridge Street, for a two-weekend run May 9 – 19. Featured in the cast are Eileen Schuyler (Nana), Richard Neil (Astrov), Steven Patterson (Vanya), Eamon Martin (Telegin), Abby Burris (Sonya), Mike Durkin (Serebryakov), Sarah Jayne Rothkopf (Yelena), and Renee Hewitt (Mariya), all directed by Bridge Street Theatre Artistic and Managing Director John Sowle.
