ALMEIDA FOR FREE
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.
