A 19th century work by Russian playwright and short-story writer Anton Chekhov is running at The Old Globe through March 11.

“Uncle Vanya, one of the world’s great plays, is being performed in an intimate and conversational style: It’s the story of Vanya and his niece Sonya, who struggle to care for an estate owned by Vanya’s brother-in-law, a wealthy and celebrated professor. When this local legend returns with a beautiful new wife and announces his plans to sell the estate, hidden passions explode and the lives of the entire family come undone.

The play is directed by Richard Nelson, with Globe-commissioned translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, as well as Nelson.

Ticket prices start at $30.
