Three Sisters archiveIn a UK premiere, one of America's most celebrated contemporary playwrights, Tracy Letts, hones and focuses Chekhov's depiction of three young Russian women, in a back-water town, whose dreams are eroded by a series of encounters with guests, lovers, family and the proletariat. It was first performed in 1900 to reflect an increasingly obsolete leisured class, struggling to find a purpose in an age of great social change. At this precise moment in time, when the intelligentsia have become irrelevant at the ballot box it couldn't feel more pertinent. Refreshingly, amidst a crowded market of Chekhov adaptations, Tracy Letts, the Tony award winning actor and Pulitzer prize winning author of stage and screen hits August:Osage County, Bug, Superior Donuts and Killer Joe, makes no radical changes to the setting, story or characters. Instead he brings a directness of motive and linguistic clarity that only a brilliant actor and an undisputed master of contemporary drama can offer.

Author Anton Chekhov (in a new version by Tracy Letts).
