“St. Petersburg’s Maly Drama Theatre, led by the superstar director Lev Dodin, simply has no peer in interpreting Chekhov”
Time Out, New York
Following a critically acclaimed West End Season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket last year, with their productions of Uncle Vanya and Life & Fate (Critics Choice The Guardian, Financial Times, Telegraph, Sunday Times), the Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg returns to the West End with this luminous retelling of Chekhov’s masterpiece, Three Sisters.
Rediscover the tragicomic story of the Prozorov sisters as they contend with their disillusioned lives in a provincial Russian town. Renowned director Lev Dodin directs this radiant, complex play with rich insight into Chekhov's eloquent understanding of resignation, longing, and love.
