UW Theatre and Dance Season Opens Oct. 2

Sept. 26, 2007 -- The University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance opens its 2007-2008 production season with “Uncle Vanya,” Anton Chekov’s bittersweet comedy about love, loss and desire.

The play, directed by UW Department of Theatre and Dance Professor William Missouri Downs, runs Oct. 2-6, at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 7, at 2 p.m. on the Fine Arts main stage.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $11 for seniors and $7 for students. To purchase tickets, call (307) 766-6666 or go to the Web site

Set in pre-revolution Russia, Chekov’s painfully funny tale tracks the intertwined lives of the pretentious Professor Serebryakov, who has led a charmed life; Vanya, the professor’s brother-in-law whose life has followed a less fortunate path; and Sonya, the professor’s daughter who has become an old maid while working to support her father.

Chekhov completed this “tragicomedy” in 1899. His distinctive plays are remembered for their unflinching and often humorous examinations of human nature.
