“HYSTERICAL, INVENTIVE, AND BRILLIANT”
-New York Theatre Review

We are pleased to welcome back audiences with Minor Character, a joyful and music-filled comedic kaleidoscope. A band of actors come together to perform a warm-hearted yet bittersweet look at love, longing, and the limitations of language.

What gets lost in translation?

Vanya feels like he’s wasted his life, and lost his chance at love. In this revolutionary new work, the classic character of Uncle Vanya gets reflected through the prisms of different translations and diverse performers.
