Three Sisters

By Anton Chekhov | In a version by Cordelia Lynn

Directed By Rebecca Frecknall

production information

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, 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), Pearl Chanda (Ink) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Dance Nation).
