Three Sisters Tickets

London Play
Maly Drama Theatre presents Chekhov's Three Sisters in the West End
“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 it’s critically acclaimed West End Season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket last year, with its productions of Life & Fate and Uncle Vanya (Critics Choice The Guardian, Financial Times, Telegraph, Sunday Times), the Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg returns 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 provincial Russia. Renowned director Lev Dodin directs this radiant, complex play with rich insight into Chekhov's eloquent understanding of resignation, longing, and love. “Ethereal… these Russian actors seem to have an intuitive ability to make whiplash fluctuations feel like the most authentic expression of humanity’s common lot” New York Times

    The production, needless to say was superlative - Dodin's Maly Theatre is l of Russia's leading theatre companies - as was the acting.BUT, in so far as concerns, value for money....I discovered that a seat which costs English pounds 40, if bought directly from the theatre, costs English pounds 48 if bought via yourselves so - this will be the last time I will be making use of your services!

    Loved the play! Superbly well written and the cast was extraordinary. I'd see it again.

    Great idea to relocate to Nigeria. Despite being set in the late 60s, it made it a more accessible play brought to life by an excellent cast.

    Nice idea, well directed with nice sets and visuals. But weighed down by the script. The actors were good but were constrained by the need to provide the political background. So they couldn't concentrate on their characters. it is a shame because some of the performances were excellent. The ones who were not saddled with having to provide background information, such as Ronke Adékoluejo who plays Abosede, are able to do justice to their characters. It is also very long and therefore flags quite often. A lot of the background plot could have been shortened. We dont really need to know about how the oil trade influenced the recognition of Biafra’s independence or the secret arms trading behind the war. It also means that we dont really get to see as much of the sisters as we should have. It is a good idea but not that well executed. it is certainly not Chekov.

    The play was very well performed. Very educating about the Biafran war and its effects on family and the community. Also gives insight into how siblings view the world differently

    Powerful and superbly acted. Not for those who like short plays though.
