Seymour Centre resident theatre company, Sport For Jove Theatre are proud to present a brand new Australian translation of one of theatre’s defining works, Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters, as part of the Reginald Season from 28th July to 13th August, 2016.
Translated by Karen Vickery (Chekhov’s Jubilee (STC)), Sport For Jove’s Three Sisters is a brilliant recreation of a universal masterpiece by one the world’s greatest playwrights. The show tells the moving story of the Prozorov family in an emotionally charged portrait of life, our dreams and trivial realities, exposing the ordinary and extraordinary flux of the human experience.
Directed by Kevin Jackson (A Hard God (Nimrod)), Three Sisters will star an immensely talented cast including Janine Watson, Paige Gardiner, Zoe Jensen, Tom Campbell, Lauren Richardson, Graeme McRae, Ken Moraleda, Dorje Swallow, Michael McStay, Shane Russon, Nicholas Hope, Justin Stewart-Cotta, Lyn Pierse and John Grinston.
“This is one of the most significant pieces of work our little theatre company has attempted,” said Sport For Jove managing artistic director, Damien Ryan. “The intimacy of the Reginald Theatre, the depth and precision of the play and its devastating flares of emotion and spirit remind me of why we go to the theatre in the first place.”
Three Sisters is the culmination of The Anton Project, a study of Chekhov’s life and work that has drawn audiences and artists together throughout the year to further explore the influences and factors shaping the play.
A new Australian collaboration with one of the world’s most valued works of art, Three Sisters is an essential theatrical experience not to be missed.
