Moscow’s calling

What if you could start life over again, knowing what you do now? What if it were all a rough draft waiting to be rewritten?

Anton Chekhov wrote Three Sisters during the earliest rumblings of the Russian Revolution. Living at the turn of a new century, his characters are adrift in uncertain times – holding on to memories of the past, grasping at hopes for the future.

In a remote Russian town, three sisters yearn for Moscow. They dream of freedom, sex, work and romance. Like the migrating birds above them, they long to be elsewhere. Exquisitely layered in its characters and imagery, Three Sisters is a bittersweet time-lapse of life passing. A work full of Chekhov’s acute observations, his playfulness and love of surprise. In short, a masterpiece.

Having created astonishing productions of Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer and Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, Kip Williams brings his precise vision to another modern great. Our former Artistic Director Andrew Upton (The Present, Uncle Vanya) returns to adapt Chekhov once more in his inimitable voice. With a cast including award-winner Eryn Jean Norvill (All My Sons), Three Sisters promises to be a riveting performance of an achingly beautiful tale.

“I’ve never been in love. I’ve dreamt of it day and night, but my heart is like a fine piano no one can play because the key is lost.”
