Three Sisters

by Anton Chekhov

directed by Tony Scola

1901, and with Russia in the grip of social revolution the Prozorov sisters and their hapless brother dream empty dreams of Moscow as their lives crumble about them.

Written at a time when theatre itself was undergoing fundamental change, Chekhov's plays have long been known for their sadness and emotional depth. Three sisters has all of this but is also sharply satirical and downright funny. Laugh while you weep; what more could you ask for?
