Drawing: Emily Taaffe, Holliday Grainger, Olivia Hallinan and Russell Bolam in Three Sisters

Three Sisters

Chekhov’s dark Three Sisters is seen in a new light by award winning playwright Anya Reiss at the Southwark Playhouse directed by Russell Bolam. After collaborating on the acclaimed Seagull with Russell in 2012, Anya adapts the Russian author’s greatest play relocating it to the middle East British diplomats and military in Yemen. Anya said “I was trying to find a from of modern exile.”

Emily Taaffe (Masha), Olivia Hallinan (Olga) and Holliday Grainger (Irina) play the three sisters which critic Luara Kate Jones said “… a believable bond between the three female leads as siblings, captivates the audiences attention.”

Three Sisters has just completed it’s short four week season at the Southwark Playhouse.
