Almeida For Free

Three Sisters for Free


Available to those aged 25 and under 

production information

This is a free performance for those aged 25 and under

Do you ever wonder what would happen if we could live our lives all over again but be fully conscious of it the second time? 

I bet we’d try to do everything differently, or at least would know to create a different world for ourselves.

In a room in a house in a provincial town, three sisters wait for their lives to begin.
Olga, the eldest. Masha, the middle child. Irina, the youngest.

The clock strikes. A candle is lit.
The clock stops. Something catches fire.
The clock strikes. They wake up.

Following her critically acclaimed production of Summer and Smoke (winner Best Revival at the 2019 Olivier Awards), Almeida Associate Director Rebecca Frecknall directs Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters, in a new adaptation by Cordelia Lynn (One For Sorrow, Lela & Co).

Cast includes Patsy Ferran (Summer and Smoke, winner Best Actress at the 2019 Olivier Awards), Pearl Chanda (Ink) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Dance Nation).

Rehearsal photography by Marc Brenner.
