6 Nov 2017 to 16 Dec 2017

Sydney Theatre Company presents
THREE SISTERS
By Anton Chekhov
In a new adaptation by Andrew Upton

A free-falling reinvention of a classic

In a remote town, Olga, Masha and Irina dream of excitement, freedom and romance, but it seems heartbreak is all they’re going to get.

Young and full of ambition, Irina wants to have a real purpose – to work, to give back. Masha, stuck in what has become a loveless marriage, wants to feel the electric rush of passion once more. While Olga, the eldest, gives and gives until there is almost nothing left.

Set across a span of several years, Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece reveals the hopes, the loves and the sacrifices of its three sisters and the many people who cross their paths. In a world falling apart at the seams, people will go on living, loving and laughing. The human heart beats strong even in a vacuum.

Andrew Upton’s compelling new adaptation preserves the essential spirit of this beloved classic, and delves into the lives of these brilliant young women with a contemporary sensibility.

Artistic Director Kip Williams teams up with long-time collaborators, designer Alice Babidge (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) and lighting designer Nick Schlieper (Chimerica), to create a bold, energetic new staging. And with a cast of fourteen superb actors – including Alison Bell, Miranda Daughtry and Eryn Jean Norvill as the sisters – this promises to be a riveting performance of a stunning play.
