About tier three sisters

A modern man-free adaptation of the Chekhov classic. In a small back garden in Lancashire, the seasons pass in lockdown. Three siblings frustrate and fortify each other, reminiscing about precedented times as the world shrinks and crumbles around them, figuratively but also literally on stage. As the sisters pine for their near-yet-so-far equivalent of Moscow (Manchester city centre) the play itself yearns to wriggle free of its own formal origins, breaking the fourth wall and bending its own realist logic. In doing so, it questions modern ideas around ambition (thwarted or otherwise), responsibility and loneliness through a female lens and a lockdown aperture, magnifying issues pushed to the fore by the year we’ve all just experienced. Knuckledown is a down-to-earth theatre company committed to making new work through hard graft and genuine collaboration with a specific dual interest in new writing by working class storytellers and devised reclamations of “classics” (in deliberate inverted commas). Their last show Starved (Hope Theatre, 2019) was nominated for LPT’s Standing Ovation Award.
