“Anthony Clark’s new play is a 21st-century mirror to Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, refracting that drama’s plot and themes through the concerns of our times.” –The Times
It is the summer of 2010. Despite the rapid erosion of Fairwold’s coastline and a global recession threatening local businesses, ex-celebrity photographer David Tiller and his sister Sophie are managing to run their old family home as a guest house. But their peaceful existence is threatened when their one-time brother-in-law Lawrence and his stunning new girlfriend decide to spend a weekend by the sea...
Our Brother David is a poignant tale of misplaced love, and a lively story of people trying to do the right thing in a crisis. Rich in humor, this beautiful new play, inspired by Chekhov’s masterpiece Uncle Vanya, could make you think differently about the future.
