‘IRELAND IS A LITTLE RUSSIA’, wrote George Moore in 1911, ten years after Three Sisters was first performed on the Russian stage. Set at the turn of the century in a grand provincial house, the play follows the emotional entanglements of three sisters and their awkward brother, dreaming of returning to Moscow as the old world crumbles around them.

Brian Friel’s translation, which premiered in the Guildhall, Derry~Londonderry in 1981, seamlessly adapts Chekhov’s language to the rhythms of Irish conversation. This rehearsed reading brings together fourteen actors (including some of the cast of Lisa McGee’s Derry Girls) in a world of deception, disaster and self-sacrifice played out on the banks of the Foyle.
