Dear Uncle

Synopsis

Ennerdale in the Lake District, 1935. Sonya and Uncle Marcus live a quiet life with occasional visits from the dashing Dr Ash. But this summer is different.

Sonya’s elderly father Cedric has turned up with his glamorous new wife Helena. They think they might stay for a few weeks, and before long chaos has broken out.

Chekhov’s masterpiece of longing and loneliness is brilliantly adapted by the master of social comedy, Alan Ayckbourn.
