Three Sisters, by Cheek By Jowl
Three Sisters, by Cheek By Jowl

CHEEK By Jowl’s stellar Russian ensemble returns to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from June 8-11 to perform Chekhov’s sweeping love story Three Sisters.

Arguably the greatest play of the 20th century, Three Sisters tells the tale of Olga, Irina and Masha whose lives are turned upside down by the arrival of glamorous officer Veshinin in their remote town. Their eternal struggle to live and to love is charted with Chekhov’s sharp eye and unfailing humanity.

Produced by Moscow’s Chekhov International Festival, Cheek by Jowl’s sister company, this production of Three Sisters has toured the world to unanimous acclaim. This visit to the Theatre Royal will provide the only opportunity for UK audiences to see this spectacular production this year.

Three Sisters will be performed in Russian and tickets to see it are available by calling the box office at the Royal Centre on 0115 9895555.
