A modern resetting of Chekhov’s Three Sisters by the award-winning novelist and playwright Lucy Caldwell. Directed by Selina Cartmell.
‘I don’t know what it is I’m going to do but I’m going to do something. I’m going to be someone. I am! I’m sick of just being me. I’m going to be someone else. Someone better. I’m going to make a difference.’
Chekhov’s masterpiece from 1900 is reset in 1990s Belfast by award-winning novelist and playwright Lucy Caldwell. Three sisters – Orla, Marianne and Erin – dream of a better tomorrow, perhaps even starting a new life in America. All three are dissatisfied with their lots in life for different reasons, but finding the resolve to make life changes that will bring real happiness is hard. Can they break free, or will they be condemned to a life of unfulfilled ambition?
Production runs until Saturday 12 November 2016.
