Uncle Vanya
written by Anton Chekhov
adapted by Annie Baker
directed by Kevin Hourigan
Fri Nov 9 - Sat Nov 17
Uncle Vanya (Brooklyn College 2018)

Taking on the classic play of a bourgeois Russian
family trapped by the banalities of their unbearable
existences, playwright Annie Baker sought to create
“a version that sounds to our contemporary American
ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears”
during the original production. Thwarted love,
failing estate, and gun still apply.



The Brooklyn College Department of Theater produces seven to ten shows a year — up to four Mainstage productions in the proscenium-style Buchwald Theater and up to six "black box" productions in the 120-seat New Workshop Theater — directed by faculty and MFA Directing candidates.

These shows provide undergraduate and graduate students plenty of hands-on experience in all phases of theatrical production.

This production activity also provides cultural enrichment for the community, which has shown great appreciation and support for departmental productions.

For information and reservations, call 718-951-4500.

In 2012, Brooklyn College broke ground to build the new Tow Center for the Performing Arts, a state of the art theater facility housing the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts, the Music Department, and the Theater Department.
