by Anton Chekhov
in a new version by Ross McGregor
produced by Arrows & Traps Theatre
In a rural backwater, three sisters dream of a better life and of returning to the Moscow of their childhood.
Irina longs for purpose, Masha for passion and Olga for some peace.
Set across four life-defining years, Chekhov’s tragicomic masterpiece explores the hopes, loves and sacrifices of three brilliant young women and the people they encounter.
When society is falling apart at the seams, can people still go on living, loving and laughing?

another impressive Arrows & Traps production – an engaging, atmospheric and intelligent adaptation of Chekhov’s classic. ★★★★ Fairy Powered Productions
Five years of consistent excellence from Arrows and Traps have set the bar incredibly high… without doubt a stylish and beautifully acted piece of storytelling. The Blog of Theatre Things
a decadent and impressive show from Arrows and Traps Theatre Company, richly evoking 19th century Russian sensibilities. However, the disillusionment and quest for meaning are very modern concerns that feel as relevant today as ever. ★★★★ The Spy in the Stalls
Now in their fifth year, Arrows and Traps have been building quite the reputation as a shining example of how to do fringe theatre… and above all, producing theatre that people want to see. An accessible and enjoyable take on Chekhov which shouldn’t be missed. There Ought to be Clowns
