By Anton Chekhov
In a new version by Tom Wood
Directed by Bob Baker

On an isolated Alberta farm in 1928 life can be a struggle. For Vanya, that struggle has all been for the benefit of one man, Alexander, the pride of the family, the brilliant academic from the big city in the East. And now Alexander has come home, to take refuge in his retirement on the Northern Alberta farm that has sustained him for so many years, and he has brought his enchanting young wife with him. But a working farm is no place for an intellectual and a sophisticated young woman, and their eagerly awaited arrival quickly results in upset routines, desperate self-reflection and the surfacing of unrequited yearnings. Tom Wood's adaptation beautifully preserves Chekhov's dry, tragi-comic style where the lines between laughter, tears and rage are as blurry as a windbreak on a prairie horizon.
