Three Sisters  

In a new version by Anya Reiss

Three Sisters $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST

“You won’t be here. Not in thirty years. You’ll have had a stroke, or I’ll have shot you. It’ll be one or the other.”

Three sisters. Three thousand miles from home. Overworked Olga, wild Masha and idealistic Irina dream of returning. Living in a world of deceit, desire and hard drinking, it’s difficult but is there something else holding them back?

Reinterpreted for the 21st century by award-winning writer Anya Reiss, this searing new version of Chekhov’s most haunting masterpiece reunites the team behind 2012's critically acclaimed, sell-out hit, The Seagull.

Cast : 5F, 7M
