Three Sisters

Three Sisters


Three Sisters is a play of thwarted potential. The sisters are elemental, glorious, bird-like creations who are ground down by their exile from Moscow. In the country, they grow old and dream of their hometown. Chekhov is an ever popular cornerstone of the canon. A contemporary of his attributed this popularity to Chekhov’s ‘rejection of what we may call the heroic values’. The young women in this play aren’t idealised. They can be melodramatic and self-centered. They aren’t really heroines. We’re not even sure how good their ‘values’ are. But they are heroic. In our production, we celebrate this heroism.
