The University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance opens its fall season with “Uncle Vanya,” Anton Chekov’s bittersweet comedy about love, loss and desire.
The play, directed by UW Department of Theatre and Dance Professor (and WAC Governor’s Arts Award winner) William Missouri Downs, runs Oct. 2-6, at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 7, at 2 p.m. on the Fine Arts main stage. Tickets are $14 for adults, $11 for seniors and $7 for students. To purchase tickets, call (307) 766-6666 or go to the Web site at http://www.uwyo.edu/finearts.
Set in pre-revolution Russia, Chekov’s painfully funny tale, completed in 1899, tracks the intertwined lives of the pretentious Professor Serebryakov, who has led a charmed life; Vanya, the professor’s brother-in-law whose life has followed a less fortunate path; and Sonya, the professor’s daughter who has become an old maid while working to support her father.
