Uncle Vanya: the Team's report

Rehearsals have begun in November, with a lot of people whose names are familiar to Ciarán's theatre fans: Ian Rickson (director), Rae Smith (designer) and Stephen Warbeck (music).

In a recent interview for The Irish World, Ciarán discusses the play and his work with Conor McPherson, in whose plays he has often acted, and Ian Rickson who directed Brian Friel's Translations, in which he played a hedge school master.

Uncle Vanya is running at the Harold Pinter Theatre until 2 May.

Ciarán in Uncle Vanya in 2020

Uncle VanyaCiarán will star next year in Conor McPherson's version of Anton Chekhov's 1897 masterwork of love displaced and dreams deferred, alongside Toby Jones as Uncle Vanya and Richard Armitage as Astrov.
