by Anton Chekhov in a new version by Cordelia Lynn
“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.
