Uncle Vanya

Date: 21 Mar 2020

A classic film version of one Chekov’s most famous plays, filmed in 1962 at the Chichester Festival Theatre.

Laurence Olivier’s production assembled a stellar cast of actors: Joan Plowright is a perfect Sonia and Rosemary Harris a subtle Yelena.

The older characters are filled out by some giants of the 20th century English stage, including Max Adrian, Lewis Casson, and Casson’s wife, the magnificent Dame Sybil Thorndike as the Nurse. Topping the list, of course, is a fine performance by Michael Redgrave in the title role. Olivier is Astrov.
