Galin Stoev has set Uncle Vanya in a dystopian future. Centralized systems have collapsed, and more and more people are leaving the cities to reimagine a harmonious life in the countryside. But creating real communities appears to be impossible: the characters’ accumulated emotional, intellectual and sexual baggage, as well as their destructive personal demons, have caught up with them. All they can do is hold onto the present and hope for passion in order to feel alive, if only for a moment. Between its unabashed melancholy and comic nervousness, this emotional retelling of Chekhov's play resonates with our current times.
