Courtney Romero of Kansas City, Kan., is a member of the company that will present “Uncle Vanya,” Chekhov’s classic tragicomedy, at Emporia State University. Romero is on the scenery crew for this production.
Translated by Brian Friel, this modern adaptation of the Chekhov classic was first produced at the Gate Theatre, Dublin, in 1998. Friel’s adaptation renders the language of the play into a modern idiom and offers humor and further developed characters’ roles and relationships.
“Uncle Vanya” will be performed April 16-19 and 23-26 at 7:30 p.m. in the R.Q. Frederickson Theatre in Roosevelt Hall.
