“McPherson’s new adaptation feels almost impossibly contemporary in the way it packs in so much lust, wit, rage and regret.”
The Times

“As accessible as a TV drama, without ever betraying the great, melancholy, insightful soul that has made the play last for as long as it has. It is radical and revelatory without ever being gimmicky or insensitive… McPherson pulls off a feat of magical reinvention, and allows us to see the play anew.”

“A Vanya for our times.”
Evening Standard

“Succeeds resoundingly in making the turn-of-the-20th-century cares of the original resonate today… the contemporary relevance is startling.”
The Arts Desk
