(event is over)

Join Forward Theater for a reading of Anton Chechkov's Uncle Vanya. In preparation for the upcoming Forward Theater production of Life Sucks, Aaron Posner's bold new re- working of Vanya, actors from Forward will perform a dramatic reading of the the four act play. Please note that this is a dramatic reading and not a fully- staged performance. Uncle Vanya is a four act play written in 1898 by Russian playwright and master of the short story, Anton Chekhov. It tells the story of Uncle Vanya, Ivan Petrovich Voinitsky, who for years has managed the estate of his brother-in-law, Aleksandr Vladimirovich Serebryakov, a retired professor. Vanya has given up his own dreams and ambitions to provide support for Serebryakov, who he thinks is a great scholar. When be finally realizes that the old professor is something of a fraud, Vanya feels cheated. His rancor against Serebryakov is increased by his love for the professor's young second wife, Elena Andreyevna--a love that is not returned. The final straw comes when Serebryakov announces his plans to sell the estate that Vanya has labored for years to make profitable. Registration is appreciated for this event. Online using the link above or by email at info@midlibrary.org. And don't miss our 'Play Club' discussion of Aaron Posner's Life Sucks here at the library on March 14th, at 6:30 PM!
