Three Sisters

Anton Chekhov, Anya Reiss


“You won’t be here. Not in thirty years. You’ll have had a stroke, or I’ll have shot you. It’ll be one or the other.”

Three sisters. Three thousand miles from home. Overworked Olga, wild Masha and idealistic Irina dream of returning. Living in a world of deceit, desire and hard drinking, it’s difficult but is there something else holding them back?

Reinterpreted for the 21st century by award-winning writer Anya Reiss, this searing new version of Chekhov’s most haunting masterpiece reunites the team behind 2012′s critically acclaimed, sell-out hit, The Seagull.
