(2 hrs., 10 mins.) It’s Chekhov without the birch trees. Playwright Aaron Posner (Stupid F*cking Bird) is back with an irreverent contemporary remix of Uncle Vanya in which egos clash, hearts hunger, and souls cry out for meaning. Raw and hilarious, packed with delicious twists and turns, this reimagining of Chekhov’s timeless classic reminds us that… Life staggers. Life confounds. Life is beautiful. And LIFE SUCKS. Call or visit website for playing schedule. (Thru 9/1)
