Wisconsin Premiere

In this bold and funny reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies lurches between love and lust, laughter and longing, and the many ways in which life does, and doesn’t … suck.

Both brash and warm-hearted, Madison native Aaron Posner’s romp of a play reminds its seven hapless characters—and us—that to feel deeply is the price of a life well-lived.


Cast: Brian Mani, Sarah Day, William Bolz, Reese Madigan, Marcella Kearns, Elyse Edelman, Rana Roman
