In a remote Russian town, Olga, Masha and Irina yearn for the adrenaline rush of life in Moscow—but their plans go nowhere. Disaster, deception, meaningless self-sacrifice—in Chekhov’s heartbreaking masterpiece, each new twist of fate sees the sisters’ control over their destiny slip away.

Author

Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) was a Russian short-story writer, playwright and physician, considered to be one of the greatest short-story writers in the history of world literature. His career as a dramatist produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov practised as a doctor throughout most of his literary career.

Benedict Andrews is one of the most sought after Australian theatre directors of his generation. Dividing his time between Sydney and Berlin, he is a regular guest at the Sydney Theatre Company, Company B Belvoir, and the Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz. He is known for startling adaptations of works from the classical repertoire alongside plays by contemporary dramatists such as Marius von Mayenburg, Sarah Kane, Martin Crimp, and Caryl Churchill. His marathon adaptation of the Shakespeare's history plays, The War of the Roses, was the theatrical highlight of the 2009 Sydney Festival. In 2009, this production received six Helpmann awards including Best Play and Best Direction of a Play, as well as five Sydney Theatre Awards for Best Direction and Best Mainstage Production.
