Film director Louis Malle and theatre director collaborated in bringing this version of Chekhov's 'Uncle Vanya' to the screen. Wallace Shawn plays the Uncle who has stayed at home on the farm for twenty years, sending money to his dead sister's husband - a retired professor who has re-married to a beautiful young woman. When the professor comes to stay with Vanya, old resentments rise to the surface. In this production the actors switch effortlessly between rehearsal in a New York studio and performance.
