Uncle Vanya

Role Astrov
Director Joe Hill-Gibbons
Young Vic

This workshop production of Chekhov's masterpiece, directed by Young Vic associate Joe Hill-Gibbons, was rehearsed over three weeks and evolved over a fortnight of performances.

Played in the round on an open set cluttered with the various rooms of the Serebryakov household, the production sought to explore the contemporary implications of the play. Jonathan played Astrov, memorably swinging a broom around as if a microphone in an impromptu drunken jam session with Stuart Quarrie's Vanya.


Jonathan Slinger was an acerbic, troubled Astrov—the perfect foil for Stuart McQuarrie’s loveable Vanya. Mel Cooper
