Life Sucks

Allens Lane Art Center Get Directions

Sort of, adapted from Anton Checkov's "Uncle Vanya".

Vanya and his niece Sonia live on the family estate. Sonia’s father and his beautiful third wife, Ella, have arrived to announce the imminent sale of the estate. Sonia longs for Dr. Aster, her uncle’s best friend, who lusts after Ella, as does Vanya, as does Pickles, a heartbroken lesbian who lives over the garage. And then there’s Babs, an artistic soul who came to help tend to Sonia’s dying mother and never left. Egos clash, hearts hunger, and souls cry out for meaning in this very funny and quite touching re-imagining of a timeless classic. Familiarity with the Chekhov original is definitely not required.

Written by Aaron Posner, Directed by Robert Bauer.
