Uncle Vanya (Russian: Дядя Ваня, romanized: Dyadya Vanya) is a play by the Russian playwright Anton Chekhov. It was first published in 1898 and received its Moscow première in 1899 in a production by the Moscow Art Theatre, under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavski. The play portrays the visit of an elderly professor and his glamorous, much younger second wife, Yelena, to the rural estate that supports their urban lifestyle.

Laurence Olivier wasn’t exactly famous for his generosity towards rival actors. But even he was moved to write in his autobiography that Michael Redgrave’s Uncle Vanya was the best performance I’ve ever seen in anything. I had been fascinated by Redgrave long before his Uncle Vanya. I had seen him play Hamlet, Antony and Benedick on stage, and been mesmerised by him on screen in movies such as The Browning Version and Dead of Night.
