WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Reworked for the 21st century by Anya Reiss, (winner, Most Promising Playwright at the Evening Standard Awards and Critics Circle Awards 2010) this searing new version of Chekhov's most haunting masterpiece reunites the team behind 2012's critically acclaimed, sell-out hit, The Seagull and is co-produced by the award winning producer of last year's smash hit, Titanic. Three sisters. Three thousand miles from home. Overworked Olga, wild Masha and idealistic Irina dream of returning. Living in a world of deceit, desire and hard drinking it's difficult but is there something else holding them back?
