Chekhov’s Three Sisters was premiered at the Moscow Arts Theatre in 1901 and has since become a recognised classic.

This production will emphasise the impressionistic and dream-like aspects of the drama. Ease and grace of movement will be highly valued. A minimalist set will afford players considerable interpretative and ‘choreographic’ scope, while integrated musical elements from a soundscape will augment the dramatic presentation.

There are four principal female characters and eight male (with two additional minor roles of each gender), who range in age from twenty to above sixty.
