For the first time ever in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, experience the work of Anton Chekhov with Three Sisters, a masterful study of family legacy, misdirected love and the human condition. This is the world premiere of a new translation by playwright Rory Mullarkey.

‘Everything’s fine. It is.’

Three Sisters. Their brother, and his fiancé. The teacher, the doctor, the old woman, and the soldiers stationed nearby. A small town, in the middle of nowhere.

Their world is going up in flames, one minute at a time. But can they create the change they’re longing for?

One of the most influential literary artists of his time, this season Anton Chekhov shares the stage with Shakespeare as we explore the transformative impact they both continue to have on how we think and feel about the world. Caroline Steinbeis (The Contingency Plan, Rutherford and Son, Sheffield Crucible) returns to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse to direct this twentieth century classic.

‘In two hundred, three hundred years, life on Earth will be unimaginably wonderful, amazing! Human beings need that kind of life, and if it doesn’t exist yet, we need to feel it in the air, wait for it, dream about it, get ready for it.’

The play contains references to suicide and war. The production also features the use of gun shots.
