Stagecraft Theatre’s adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s 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.
