Date: Tuesday 27th October 2020
Running time: 1hr 55min
The filmed version, produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, will reunite nearly all of the original cast from the West End run with Toby Jones (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Detectorists) starring alongside Richard Armitage (The Hobbit, The Stranger), Rosalind Eleazar (The Personal History of David Copperfield) and Roger Allam (Endeavour, The Thick of It).
This ‘sumptuous reimagining’ of Chekhov’s classic has an even greater resonance following the country’s lockdown, where a conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, and each other, while living on an isolated estate. The filmed version of the play will include the special moment when the cast reunite at the theatre for the filming, the first time since lockdown in mid-March.
