A brand-new perspective on Anton Chekhov's classic THREE SISTERS from performers, musicians, theatre makers and Royal Exchange Associate Artists RashDash. As they reimagine this classic they ask - what if RashDash were the three sisters, Olga, Masha and Irena? A drawing room. We are going to philosophise our heads off! How should I make the most of being alive in this moment? How should I try to enjoy life whilst also being a good person who makes space for a better future? What is love and where do I find it? What work needs to be done? Why do the men in this play have all the lines? Chekhov. Dead, white man. A classic play. A period drama with surprises.Company RashDash.

In a rural backwater, three sisters dream of a better life and of returning to the Moscow of their childhood. Irina longs for purpose, Masha for passion and Olga for some peace. Set across four life-defining years, Chekhov's tragicomic masterpiece explores the hopes, loves and sacrifices of three brilliant young women and the people they encounter. When society is falling apart at the seams, can people still go on living, loving and laughing? Seven-time Offie-Nominated Arrows & Traps Theatre bring a contemporary sensibility and a bold, energetic new staging to this riveting and beloved classic.Adapted by Ross McGregor.

World Premiere. When Father was alive, this place was packed... there was heat, laughter, life. Olga, Masha and Irina long for the glamour of Moscow and to escape life in provincial Russia. But with constant visits by soldiers and dignitaries, by family, friends and 'acquaintances'; with work to be done and marriages to be honoured will they ever be free? A play of life, love, loss, dreams, whimsy, hope - real and false - of moving and of remaining where you are.Company Lung Ha Theatre Company (in co-production with The Sibelius Academy of the University of The Arts - Helsinki Finland). Adapted by Adrian Osmond. Director Maria Oller. Design Karen Tennent. Costume Alison Brown. Music Anna-Karin Korhonen. Director Fiona Mackinnon (assistant).
