Southern Tier Actors Read perform Chekov’s “Uncle Vanya”

Director Bernie Sheredy speaks with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about directing Anton Chekov’s Uncle Vanya. Sheredy has found a translation of this classic play that he feels captures the spirit of the original.

“Vanya is one of the most — I think — fully realized of his comedic masterpieces. It’s certainly my favorite. And to have a chance to work on it, even in just a reading, though as a reading it’s incredibly challenging, because Vanya’s a stretch for any actor.”

Incidental music will be provided by a balalaika player who has recently immigrated from Russia.  Southern Tier Actors Read, or S.T.A.R., are presenting it at the Cider Mill Playhouse in Endicott.
