Uncle Vanya Presented by Flashback Theater – Somerset Community College-Stoner Little Theater, 808 Monticello St. Somerset, KY, 7:30pm. Uncle Vanya is credited as one of Chekhov’s masterpieces and a significant precursor of modern drama. Set on a country estate in late nineteenth century Russia, Uncle Vanya is in part a study of the enervation of Russian middle-class provincial life. The major dynamics between the characters themselves are centered on two obsessive love affairs that lead nowhere and a flirtation that brings disaster. Mixing the tragic and the absurd and dealing with a form that allows for ambiguity and contradiction, Uncle Vanya has been deemed “the first modernist play”.
