“There can be no happiness for our generation. There can’t be, there won’t be…”

In a provincial Russian town outside Moscow, three sisters are waiting for their lives to begin - again.

The clock strikes twelve and the table in the hall is being laid for lunch.

Directed by Marc Atkinson Borrull, this enduring Chekhov classic is given a contemporary life in a new translation by Cordelia Lynn.

This version is a timeless examination of wistful nostalgia and the purpose of existence amidst incredible political and cultural change, with a delicate twist of humour.
