By Anton Chekhov, In a Version by Cordelia Lynn, Directed by Rebecca Frecknall
6 Apr — 1 Jun 2019
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.
