“Uncle Vanya” is a play by Anton Chekhov . It opens at the Colorado Mountain College’s Spring Valley campus tonight.
“Uncle Vanya” was first published in 1897, and was performed two years later in Moscow.
The play follows the lives of a family living in the Russian countryside. Vanya and his niece, Sonya, live their lives frugally. They keep their emotions close to their chest. But when a relative shows up with his beautiful, younger wife, things start to fall apart.
