particular the use of soft, rustic
lighting, which was effective in locating
the rural setting, and in distilling a
sense of elegiac sadness.
BRIAN BEDORD'S Dr. Astrov all but
dominated the performance. At once a
loner and deeply dependent on others,
Astrov's revealing of his love for Elena
was among the play's most moving
moments. Elena (Martha Henry) was
played competently, but something was
missing from the character. Although
Martha Henry was excellent in
bringing out Elena's bordedom and
arrogance, the performance would
have been more dynamic had we been
better able to obtain a glimpse of the
spark of passion buried years ago.
Sonya (Marti Maraden), unable to
convey her love for the Dr., was an ef-
fective mirror image of Vanya's
struggles, although Maraden oc-
casionally overplayed the character's
schoolgirl eagerness to the point of
trivializing her romantic notions. The
minor characters, humorous sideman
for the others, were uniformly excel-
lent, particularly Max Helpmann as the
crotchety, gout-ridden Professor
Serebriakov and Mary Savidge as
The only negative aspect of this
otherwise wonderful performance
came with the overplaying of Vanya's
funnier moments. William Hutt was the
main culprit. It is fine for Vanya to
display an acidic wit in the opening
scenes, but one felt Hutt was milking
the ha-ha lines for all their worth. We
should never lose track of the pent-up
bitterness that is the source of Vanya's
