Uncle Vanya review at Theatr Clwyd, Mold – ‘a finely crafted reworking’

Jamie Ballard’s wonderfully dishevelled, valetudinarian Vanya, mines the text for every ounce of its bleak humour.

Uncle Vanya, Chekhov, Theatr Clwyd

Jamie Ballard is simply extraordinary in (and as) Uncle Vanya. Voted by the Guardian as one of the “ten best Hamlets ever”, Ballard is an absolute revelation as a man whose entire life has been dictated to and shaped by other people’s, whether it be the death of his sister, an unrequited love, or his supercilious brother-in-law. Vanya is one of life’s great losers, and Jamie Ballard not so much plays the part as inhabits it.
