Jamie Ballard is simply extraordinary in (and as) Uncle Vanya. Voted by the Guardian as one of the “ten best Hamlets ever”, Ballard is an absolute revelation as a man whose entire life has been dictated to and shaped by other people’s, whether it be the death of his sister, an unrequited love, or his supercilious brother-in-law. Vanya is one of life’s great losers, and Jamie Ballard not so much plays the part as inhabits it.
