Description

Playbill of the Irish Theatre in Harwicke Street (June-July 1915) for Uncle Vanya Scenes from Country Life in Four Acts by Anton Tchekoff.

The play was performed in Hardwicke Street for six nights from 28 June to 4 July 1915. Checkov along with Ibsen, Maeterlink, Strindberg were among the authors favoured by the directorate of the Irish Theatre, set up with the intent to offer an alternative to the peasant drama of the Abbey by staging “Irish language plays, contemporary continental masterpieces, and works by Irish writers who dealt with urban and upper-middle class life” (Feeney).
