Victoria Blunt to perform understudy performance of VANYA in the West End

Victoria Blunt is to perform a public understudy performance of Chekhov’s VANYA in the West End.

The performance will take place at the Duke of York’s Theatre on 6 October at 3PM. As with the first West End performance by Andrew Scott, all tickets will be £10. You can Book tickets online now here.

Simon Stephens’ adaptation, otherwise starring Andrew Scott, is running 21 October 2023.

Comedic and tragic, Chekhov’s examination of our shared humanity – our hopes, dreams, regrets – is thrust into sharp focus in VANYA.

Directed by Sam Yates, assisted by Francesca Hsieh, this critically acclaimed production explores the kaleidoscope of human emotions, harnessing the power of the intimate bond between actor and audience to delve deeper into the human psyche.

The production has design by Rosanna Vize, lighting design by James Farncombe, sound design by Dan Balfour, video design by Jack Phelan, movement Michela Meazza, costume design by Natalie Pryce and associate design by Blythe Brett.
