Three Sisters archiveStranded in a remote provincial town, three sisters dream of returning to the Moscow of their youth. When a military garrison arrives nearby,the officers become their guests and suddenly a new life seems to be within reach. Liaisons develop, love is in the air and hopes run high - but the sisters reckon without the weakness of their brother, the grasping ambitions of his wife, and the strange eccentricities of a certain lieutenant. An explosion is brewing and matters come to a head on a frantic night of fire.

The Telegraph (11Jan01): [Liz Lochhead] s revision turns Chekhov s class tensions into Anglo Scots friction. It s a shame that director [Tony Cownie] hasn t bothered to make the English characters speak with the brittle briskness of the era. But [Caroline Devlin] s bitchiness is strongly underscored with depression, and [Jimmy Chisholm] veers between hilarious explosive rudeness and desperate, cornered loneliness.
