Nicholas Wright’s version of Chekhov’s masterpiece, in which four young people are left stranded in a provincial backwater following the death of their father. They focus their dreams on returning to Moscow, a city remembered through the eyes of childhood as a place where happiness may just be possible.

This version of Three Sisters was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 2003.

‘More than any Three Sisters I recall, it contrasts laughter with what comes after: hope and delight with frustration and disillusion… Extremely moving – and wholly Chekhovian’
The Times

‘Beautifully poetic… A Chekhov to cherish’
