For years the estate, under the management of Uncle Vanya, brother of the professors first wife, has yielded a modest income, but now, with the professor older and bored, he offers the idea of selling the estate and investing the money in bonds a prospect most unsettling for those who have come to regard the place as their home.

Counterpointed against the professors unrest are the situations of others in the family: his daughter Sonyas unrequited passion for the local doctor, Astrov, who visits often- Vanyas love for the professors young wife- and her own unspoken attraction to another.

Throughout there is the bittersweet, deeply human aura of real people helplessly in thrall to events and feelings beyond their control. In the end the estate is not sold and, as the summer wanes, the professor and his wife depart, leaving the others to settle back into the uneventful but bearable routine that has become their way of life.
