Richard Armitage and Toby Jones are to star in a new production of Uncle Vanya.
Armitage will play Astriv with Jones as the lead in the production that will open at the Harold Pinter Theatre in January.
Uncle Vanya takes place at the close of the 19th century. In the heart of the Russian countryside, Vanya and his niece Sonya have worked for years to manage the ramshackle estate on behalf of his brother-in-law, a retired professor.
When the professor arrives with his stunningly beautiful young wife and announces his plan to sell the estate, all their lives are thrown into turmoil.
Full dates and ticket details are still to be announced.
