Riassunto: Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet?s Uncle Vanya is a sparkling restoration of a masterpiece of the modern stage, marked by Mamet?s finely tuned ear for dialogue and memorable poetic imagery.
In "Uncle Vanya," a retired professor and his beautiful young wife return to the country estate left by his deceased first wife to find themselves overwhelmed by the stagnant inevitability of the rituals of their life and class, and mercilessly taxed by the encroachment of age at the expense of youth. All of the play?s characters are plunged into that precarious state where, in Beckett?s words, “the boredom of living is replaced by the suffering of being.?
Working from a literal translation by Vlada Chernomordik, Mamet, who has also adapted Chekhov?s Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard, opens the way for a contemporary audience to establish immediate contact with a classic, infusing the power of Chekhov?s play with the potent precision of his own modern voice.
L'autore: Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) first turned to writing as a medical student at Moscow University, from which he graduated in 1884. Among his early plays were short monologues (The Evils of Tobacco, 1885), one-act farces such as The Bear, The Proposal and The Wedding (1888-89) and the 'Platonov' material, adapted by Michael Frayn as Wild Honey. The first three full-length plays to be stage, Ivanov (1887), The Wood Demon (1889) and The Seagull (1896) were initially failures. But the Moscow Arts Theatre's revival of The Seagull two years later was successful and was followed by his masterpieces, Uncle Vanya (1889), Three Sisters (1901), and The Cherry Orchard in 1904, the year of his death.
