Production images have been released for Uncle Vanya, which is currently in previews at the Harold Pinter Theatre in the West End.

The cast is composed of Richard Armitage, Toby Jones, Dearbhla Molloy, Anna Calder-Marshall, Ciarán Hinds, Rosalind Eleazar, Aimee Lou Wood and Peter Wight. Conor McPherson's adaptation of the Anton Chekhov play follows a fragmented family falling into a state of disrepair.

The piece marks Armitage's return to the stage six years after he appeared in the revival of Arthur Miller's The Crucible. McPherson's Girl from the North Country is currently running in the West End, and will open on Broadway later this year.
