Notes

Dear Uncle is an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's play Uncle Vanya with the action moved to the Lake District during 1935. It was translated by Vera Liber and then adapted by Alan Ayckbourn.
The play was presented in association with the London producers David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers, who had originally commissioned the play for a West End premiere to be directed by Matthew Warchus. This did not take place and permission was given for the play to be premiered at the SJT.
