In a remote Russian town, Olga, Masha and Irina long for 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.
This version of The Three Sisters has been radically re-worked. It is set in modern day Russia, with modern language and it re-imagines the sisters' dreams and the world around them.
This compelling version of the Russian classic by renowned Australian director Benedict Andrews premiered at the Young Vic on 8 September 2012. Benedict Andrew's version of Three Sisters was third in the *Guardian'*s top ten best theatre picks of 2012.
