Three Sisters

By Anton Chekhov Translated by Nicholas Wright

Paperback £10.99

Nicholas Wright's version of Chekhov's masterpiece, in which four young people are left stranded in a provincial backwater following the death of their father.

This version of Three Sisters was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 2003.

Press Quotes

'More than any Three Sisters I recall, it contrasts laughter with what comes after: hope and delight with frustration and disillusion... Extremely moving - and wholly Chekhovian'
