A play based around youthful hopes and dreams squashed by
the necessary grind of life. Chekhov offers a closely observed study of a
family falling apart. Everything is taken from the three sisters – Olga, Masha
and Irina – the security of their comfortable home life, their ambitious plans
for a bright future, love and lovers. A complex process of stripping away from
them everything they hold dear is played out over four increasingly tense acts,
bringing reward to some and despair to others.
