Delta Drama presents Chekhov's 'Uncle Vanya'
February 20, 2019

STOCKTON -- Delta Drama proudly presents "Uncle Vanya," Chekhov's beloved story of human relationships and yearning.

The production begins March 1 in the Al Muller Studio Theatre, on the third floor of the Locke building on Delta's Stockton campus.

In an effort to serve the community by making Delta events accessible and affordable, Delta Drama is pleased to announce that productions are now free and open to the public for no charge. Seating is limited, and is on a first-come, first-served basis, so please plan accordingly.

This new adaptation of Chekhov’s classic from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker brings colloquial language to this internationally beloved story of human relationships and yearning.

Written with the "goal of creating a version that sounds to our contemporary American ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears in 1898," Annie Baker’s "Uncle Vanya" introduces 21st-century audiences to Chekhov’s enduring wit, insight, and emotional depth.

"Uncle Vanya" will be performed March 1-3 and March 8-10, with Friday and Saturday performances at 7 p.m., and Sunday performances at 2 p.m.
