After Three Sisters
Living Record presents the premiere of Neil Smith’s revolutionary tale of history repeating itself. After Three Sisters, is a vivid piece of new writing, inspired by Chekhov’s famous work, which questions why we continue to turn our backs on reality and become swept away by dreams.
1905. Moscow. Olga, Masha and Irina return to the capital to find that it is no longer the peaceful city of their childhoods. 2011. Lewisham, London. Three Russian sisters try to stay afloat in a city on the brink of tearing itself apart. Situated around the events leading to the St. Petersburg massacre and the 2011 London riots, Neil Smith’s new play questions what makes a city and a family turn on itself, and who decides how we will be remembered.
