Uncle Vanya: Valiantly Accepting Next Year’s Agony
August 24, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Rebel and Misfits Productions is bringing its two-hour immersive interpretation of Anton Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya” to St Louis theatre fans. The second piece in the company’s “The Immersive Theatre Project” series, “Uncle Vanya: Valiantly Accepting Next Year’s Agony” will run for two weeks, Thursday-Monday, from August 24 through September 3 at a private residence at 110 Dielman Road in Ladue. The story of Uncle Vanya follows an elderly professor and his young, glamorous second wife, Yelena, to a rural estate, causing the desires and tempers of those residing there to flare. Matters are brought to a crisis when the professor announces his selfish intention to sell the estate and characters’ desperation sets in.
Artistic director Kelly Hummert enjoys creating immersive theatrical experiences in diverse and unusual locations, inviting audiences to enjoy a new, daring way to experience theatre. Rebel and Misfits’ interpretation of “Uncle Vanya” will begin with a high-tea reception and feature Russian libations at intermission. Audiences can expect direct contact with characters from the show throughout the evening as part of the immersive theatre experience.
