Uncle Vanya

Uncle Vanya, first published in 1897, is Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece on the frustrated longings and quiet trials of what may be called ordinary, “wasted” lives.  Though it is over a hundred years old, Uncle Vanya probes the central questions of human nature proving that these are timeless and universal and that Chekhov’s understanding of them is as acute as ever.

Stagecraft Theatre’s adaptation of Uncle Vanya is set in a tea estate in a remote mountain district in India’s north east. The play portrays the visit of an elderly professor and his glamorous, much younger second wife, Helen to the rural tea estate that supports their urban city lifestyle. Two friends, Ivan (Uncle Vanya), brother of the professor’s late first wife, who has long managed the estate, and Michael, the local doctor, both fall under Helen’s spell while they grapple with weariness and dissatisfaction with their existence.

Sonia, the professor’s daughter from his first marriage, who has worked with Ivan to keep the estate going, meanwhile suffers from the awareness of her own lack of ‘beauty’ and unrequited love for Michael. Matters come to a head when the professor announces his intention to sell the estate, Ivan and Sonia’s home and raison d’etre.

Stagecraft Theatre Presents : Alice in Wonderland- The Musical.

A world of wonders in one enchanting musical.

Alice the protagonist must find her way through this strange place called “Wonderland”.She is a 7 year old girl who while sitting with her sisters falls asleep and enters this world by falling down a rabbit hole. She follows the White Rabbit who leads her on many adventures throughout the book. The story is full of fanciful characters, each one adding a bit of humor and dimension to the story.

Alice encounters various talking animals – a White Rabbit who acts as Alice’s guide, the Caterpillar who provides Alice with a way to control her growth, a smiling cat who can disappear and reappear at will; there is the Queen of Hearts, the mad tyrant who rules Wonderland.

The story is both entertaining and symbolic in the way that character teaches Alice something about life and growing up in a dangerous world.
