Uncle Vanya

Filmed at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London in August 2020.

Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their time on an isolated estate, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage).

However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Roger Allam) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar), polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge. As the conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, loneliness and each other, can the beauty of life help them find new hope?

A new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece by Conor McPherson directed by Ian Rickson. As the majority of theatres across the world remain in darkness, Uncle Vanya’s exquisite ensemble overcome the considerable challenges of working in a global pandemic, returning to the Harold Pinter Theatre to film the production, which is currently nominated for four Olivier Awards.

WHY? Full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future, Uncle Vanya is a must-see event for our times

Marlon Solomon - Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale

Marlon's a Jew. This didn't bother him much until he discovered that some people he knew didn't believe the Holocaust happened.

From 9/11 to shape-shifting lizards and Holocaust denial, this is a darkly comic tale of one man's journey through the conspiracy underworld. Marlon explores why conspiracy theories are more popular than ever, how fake news gives fresh currency to ancient slander and how this all relates to current issues in the Labour Party. It's a comic tale which is no laughing matter.

Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale is a piece of documentary theatre, in 2018 it became the first one-person show to be performed in the Houses of Parliament. It also won Best Spoken Word at Greater Manchester Fringe Festival in the same year.

WHY? 'Funny, moving, at some points deeply disturbing, and provides absolutely essential context for the worst aspects of how we live now' David Baddiel

Online streaming tickets are also available for this event – so you can enjoy the show live from the comfort of your home

'Shrewd, funny and important' Jonathan Freedland (The Guardian)

'Compelling, shocking, essential' Al Murray

'A Lizard’s Tale is a devastating show. Informative, absorbing and very funny. The funniest show about antisemitism on the fringe. Or anywhere I suspect' David Schneider
