Life Sucks
On Love, Longing & Loss, From Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya.
Off-Broadway Alliance Award

By Aaron Posner. Sort of adapted from ‘Uncle Vanya’ by Anton Chekhov.

In my second irreverent Chekhov adaptation, the befuddled, bemused and bedraggled characters, lovingly torn from Uncle Vanya, struggle mightily against all their obstacles— not fully realizing they are mostly of their own creation.
“Posner gives huge and equal bearhugs to Chekhov’s absurd comedy and touching pathos.”
