Two men love the same woman. Two women love the same man. Vanya is a study of the febrile and passionate inner lives of the four main protagonists in Chekhov's tragicomedy. Sam Holcroft's new play explores an inner world of high emotion, memory and missed opportunity that goes beyond despair and longing to reveal two obsessive love affairs that lead nowhere.
