‘ Life is a raspberry—one bite and it’s gone!’
Olga, Masha and Irina dream of returning to Moscow …
But time marches on … Soldiers come and go, babies are born,
great calamities take place —a fire, a duel—and local girl Natasha takes over the household.
Life happens while the three Prozorov sisters wait for theirs to begin.
It’s time to act …
A bold and absurd new version of Chekhov’s tragicomic classic by Laurence Strangio. This playful translation highlights the heartbreaking yet provocative humour of the play, pricking the tragedy of these siblings who bemoan their lives while those around them get on with theirs.
