Maly Drama's Three Sisters to run in the West End
The Russian production of Chekhov will run at the Vaudeville Theatre
St Petersburg theatre company Maly Drama will return to the West End in June with their hit production of Chekhov's classic play Three Sisters.
Playing for ten performances only, the tragicomic story will be directed by Lev Dodin and runs at the Vaudeville Theatre on the Strand.
Dodin has spent 35 years as artistic director of Maly Drama, winning awards including an Olivier in 1989, multiple Golden Mask Awards and the European Theatre Award in 2000.
He says: "Three Sisters is a play about people with ideals. I think today too many of us – the world over – understand only too well what unfulfilled hopes are and the nature of fallen-through plans, lost illusions and impossible loves. We all unfortunately understand the universal language of loss."
Last year the company presented two of its hit shows – Uncle Vanya and Life and Fate – at Theatre Royal Haymarket.
Three Sisters runs from 19 June to 29 June, with tickets on sale now.
