A CROW’S THEATRE PRODUCTION OF UNCLE VANYA
Written by: Anton ChekhovDirected by: Chris AbrahamAdapted by: Liisa Repo-Martell
FIND YOUR PASSION A modern adaptation and dazzling cast breathe new life into Chekhov’s masterpiece. In the waning days of Czarist Russia, Vanya and his niece, Sonya, toil ceaselessly to run their family estate. After retiring, Sonya’s father, a celebrated professor, returns to the estate with his young, glamourous wife. When he announces his plans to sell the land and evict them all, passions explode and lives come undone. Brimming with emotional intensity and comedic genius, Hamilton audiences will see what The Globe and Mail calls “Spellbinding.”
ARTWORK BY: Christopher HallWith a 23-year background in tattooing and graphic design, “Professor” Christopher Hall has developed a purposeful style and a keen eye for color composition that he expresses in his acrylic painting practice. Drawing heavily on a deep culture of tattooing symbolism, Hall translates a mixture of these images into fresh contemporary works of bright, eye-catching palettes and design. Utilizing digital software tools to complete the majority of the preliminary work allows him to responsively manipulate the composition and palettes before painting them onto canvas. Christopher Hall holds a diploma in Graphic Design from Canadore College, ON. His works are held in private collections in Canada and the United States.
