WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Chekhov-inspired Three Sisters on Hope Street, relocates this complex story of family ties in 1940s Liverpool. Liverpool, 1946: A year after the sudden death of their father, sisters Gertie, May and Rita Lasky share their asthmatic brother Arnold, Auntie Beil (who still keeps her packed suitcase under the spare bed) and old family friend Dr Nate Weinberg (who claims, hand on heart, to be on the wagon). As the sisters regularly welcome GIs and pilots from the nearby American base, each continues her own search for meaning amidst the shattered remains of their city, in a rapidly changing world. Combining warmth, poignancy and comedy, this vibrant new take on Chekhov's classic unites the talents of Diane Samuels and well-known television and theatre actress Tracy-Ann Oberman to create a powerful and witty work.
