About the showFollowing 2018’s critically acclaimed productions of Uncle Vanya and Life & Fate at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, the Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg make their return to London with a new Russian production of Chekhov’s Three Sisters.
Often referred to as one of Chekhov’s masterworks, the 1900 play centres around the Prozorov sisters as they contend with their disillusioned lives in provincial Russia. The play explores themes such as longing, love, passion, and resignations.
Maly Drama’s artistic director, Lev Dodin, directs. Dodin became the first international company to win an Olivier Award in 1989 with his play Stars in the Morning Sky.
The cast includes Irina Tychinina as Olga, Ksenia Rappoport (until 23 June) and Elizaveta Bovarskava (from 25 June) as Masha, and Ekaterina Tarasova as Irina.
Three Sisters plays at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End for ten performances only. You can catch it from 19-29 June.
