In a remote Russian town, Olga, Masha and Irina yearn for the adrenaline rush of life in Moscow – but their plans go nowhere. Disaster, deception, meaningless self-sacrifice – in Chekhov’s heartbreaking masterpiece, each new twist of fate sees the sisters’ control over their destiny slip away.
Visionary director Benedict Andrews, lauded in Berlin and Sydney, returns to the Young Vic after his triumphant The Return of Ulysses in 2011. Renowned German designer Johannes Schütz makes his Young Vic debut.
