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.
