England, 1976. The hottest summer since records began.

The revolution is being televised, and Vanya is watching it happen without her. She’s stuck caring for her elderly mother in a house that’s falling down — and now her brother-in-law has turned up, drinking until the small hours every night. The entire household is desperate for him to leave. None of them suspect he has a plan that threatens to blow their world to pieces.

In their Oxford Playhouse debut, the Doppler Project relocate Chekhov’s play to a time when nobody won wars and the UK won Eurovision. Vanya brings together current students and alumni from the University of Oxford in a new initiative.

Alumni working in all areas, and at all stages of careers in theatre have come together to collaborate with current students in a celebration of the past, present and future of drama at the University of Oxford.
