Oom Vanja

Vanja, his mother, his housemaid, his niece Sonja and her godfather have lived together for donkey’s years in a godforsaken place. The only person to provide some diversion is his drinking mate Doctor Astrov. The unbearable lightness of their dreary being is suddenly broken by a visit from Vanja’s ex brother-in-law, the professor and his thirty years younger wife.
Dormant passion awakens and turns this “huis clos of repressed frustrations” upside down.

You come into the world, you dream a life, and at the end you’ve realised nothing of that dream, THE END.” (LP, Aug. 2003)
