Review this show


Do you ever wonder what would happen if we could live our lives all over again but be fully conscious of it the second time?

I bet we’d try to do everything differently, or at least would know to create a different world for ourselves.

In a room in a house in a provincial town, three sisters wait for their lives to begin.
Olga, the eldest. Masha, the middle child. Irina, the youngest.

The clock strikes. A candle is lit.
The clock stops. Something catches fire.
The clock strikes. They wake up.

Critic reviews

Patsy Ferran is in a class of her own in this fitfully successful revival

· The Telegraph

In its drifting strangeness, it reminds us why Chekhov is — ironically — so timeless and why he might speak afresh to today’s millennials

· Financial Times

Patsy Ferran’s Olga is one of the many admirable performances in a production by Rebecca Frecknall that fails to deliver a full Chekhovian experience

· The Guardian

This is a play about three women, bored with their lot, who are desperate for fun, love, stimulation. And so, after three hours of this, are we

· The Times

Rebecca Frecknall's occasionally frustrating staging of Chekhov contains moments of great poignancy and some dazzling acting

· The Stage

Moments of brilliance but never sharply contemporary. It seems marooned somewhere between the 19th century and now


A slow-burning yet engrossing study of a young family's collapsing dreams

· WhatsOnStage

An over-ripe series of theatrical stylisations

· London Theatre

There are many moments during this three-hour marathon when I longed for more focus and more concision

· The Arts Desk

An absorbing start to Chekhov reinterpretation but feels overlong

· Evening Standard
