Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the second production in the Anton Chekhov series from The Online Stage: Uncle Vanya, now available at Audible! Elizabeth performs the role of Helena in this production, which follows the recent release of The Cherry Orchard, and which will be succeeded later this year by The Three Sisters and The Seagull.
Uncle Vanya is Anton Chekhov’s 1902 tragicomedy focusing on the romantic entanglements of the residents of a declining country estate. Vanya loves Helena, the unhappily married wife of aged professor Serebrakoff. Sonia loves Dr. Astroff, but he’s more interested in Helena. Serebrakoff loves only himself and is idealized by Vanya’s mother, who believes him to be a genius. All the characters waver between love and hate, between idleness and industry, between idealism and despair, in Chekhov’s “Scenes from Country Life”.
