About Vanya

Andrew Scott is returning to the West End to play every single role in Anton Chekhov’s play Uncle Vanya, in a new adaptation by Simon Stephens, playing at London’s Duke of York’s Theatre this autumn. See this talented stage and screen actor live for one month only — book Vanya tickets on London Theatre now.

Scott is renowned for his work in theatre, starring in shows like the Noel Coward comedy Present Laughter at the Old Vic, Hamlet at the Almeida Theatre and in the West End, and Birdland at the Royal Court. During the pandemic, he performed an incredible monologue, Three Kings, which was streamed from the Old Vic.

On screen, his diverse range of projects includes Fleabag as the Hot Priest, Sherlock as Moriarty, war movie 1917, period drama The Pursuit of Love, queer film Pride, fantasy series His Dark Materials.

Now, Scott reunites with playwright Simon Stephens (Song from Far Away, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, adaptations of A Doll’s House and The Cherry Orchard), who worked with Scott previously on two shows – Birdland and Sea Wall – to bring an extraordinary new one-man show to the West End.

This Vanya London production, coming to the Duke of York’s Theatre, will see Scott tackle not just the title role of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, but all the characters. That includes the family living on a rural estate, plus the professor and his attractive young wife who come to visit and cause chaos.

Chekhov's Uncle Vanya is a play with roiling passions beneath the surface: love, lust, artistic impulses, and even violence. The greatest actors of the age have appeared in it – everyone from Peter O’Toole, Antony Sher, and Ian McKellen to Cate Blanchett, Laurence Olivier, and Derek Jacobi.

Just one actor encompassing that is a jaw-dropping feat. Directing Scott in this thrilling Vanya play is Sam Yates, whose previous West End productions include The Starry Messenger (with Matthew Broderick and Elizabeth McGovern), Glengarry Glen Ross, East is East, and Murder Ballad.

Vanya in the West End is definitely a must-see, so book tickets on London Theatre now.

Great acting, Absorbing

See it if into a modern-day one-person adaptation of Chekov; with superb acting and inventive direction. Available on @NTLive.

Don’t see it if well... at first, despite voice changes and props, it is a game of "Who is he now?". As the scenes get longer, it becomes a true play.

Slow, Absorbing, Intense, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you are an Andrew Scott fan. He is remarkable as an entire cast of characters.

Don’t see it if You want a faithful Vanya. This is not. Lots of the f-word and some sex scenes (!). Requires concentration and might be dull to some.
