About the show

1h 50m | Already closed | New Perspectives Theatre (Midtown W)

Eagle Project presents an American retelling of Chekhov's classic drama set in the Reconstruction South. More…

This adaptation takes place on a former plantation in Missouri, and combines Native-American and African-American influences to enhance the original text. 'Uncle Abram' aims to awaken our spirit for a better tomorrow, and test our fortitude by asking the question, "What are you willing to sacrifice to change the world?"

Stage Buddy

"'Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya' could just as easily have been named 'Uncle Vanya Gets Woke'...The production is fascinating, seeing racial and social themes that are still with us today through the eyes of those in the first years of living together ostensibly as equals...Chekhov would have liked it."

Theatre is Easy

"The Eagle Project's 'Uncle Abram' breathes new life into the Chekhov classic and offers a unique indigenous perspective on its environmentalist theme...Among the ensemble, Torres stands out as an impressive Esther...One disappointment might be the overly exaggerated costumes...'Uncle Abram' taps into the unique aspect of the importance of nature in Native American culture, which makes the piece more than just another Chekhov adaptation."

Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Profound, Great staging

See it if Vanya gets the Nelson treatment - soft conversational intimate peek at life around a table. Great acting and staging brilliantly directed

Don't see it if You don’t like Nelson style as noted above or don’t relish chekhovian despair but try this one - it is so well done and accessible and true

Quirky, Indulgent, Confusing, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if You like to be uncomfortable, seating, temperature. If you don't like Chekhov. I waited til intermission to,leave others didn't.

Don't see it if You have better things to do.
