Directed by BSC artistic director Julianne Boyd, the Anton Chekhov classic will be presented Aug. 9-26 with an official opening Aug. 12. The company will feature Jack Gilpin (The Elephant Man, Beyond Therapy) as Vanya, Keira Naughton (BSC's Wonder of the World) as Sonya, Heidi Armbruster (Tea and Sympathy) as Yelena, Mark Montgomery (Mamma Mia!) as Astrov, Patricia Conolly (The Coast of Utopia) as Marina, Kenneth Tigar (Translations) as the Professor, Alaina Warren Zachary as Maria and Robert Grossman as Telegin. The Barrington production of Vanya will feature a translation by Paul Schmidt. Set in turn-of-the-century Russia, the play, according to press notes, "explores the unfulfilled hopes and unrequited love that surface when an aging professor and his beautiful young wife return home to his country estate."
The design team comprises Karl Eigsti (sets), Elizabeth Flauto (costumes), Scott Pinkney (lighting) and Matt Nielson (sound).
Barrington Stage is located at 30 Union Street in Pittsfield, MA. Tickets, priced $34-$54, are available by calling (413) 236-8888. For more information visit www.barringtonstageco.org.
