Description

Three Sisters and Them takes Chekhov's play into the fractured world of today. Masha and Irina, now living in England, find Olga crashing back into their lives, challenging the gender of Masha's child. This dark comedy is written by Rita Ippolit, author of the 'highly recommended' (FringeReview.co.uk) play Almost Instinct Almost True – **** (BroadwayBaby.com) – and again directed by Lily Whiteside and starring Julia Munrow and Teddy Walker, along with a new member of the company, Julia Rufey.

I second what someone else said, I'm desperate to see a second act!

I was very happy for this to be the last show of my fringe this year. It was witty, relevant, touching and acted so honestly and precisely. This was great, heartfelt drama with all the roles feeling depthful and balanced. Loved it!

A clever script with telling intertextual references to Russian literature and contemporary Putinesque prejudices combined with moments of natural comedy in the Chekhovian style. Brilliantly acted, the play leaves you yearning for a second act.

This is a wonderful one act play. I enjoyed it so much I really didn't want it to end. Sensitively directed by Lily Whiteside, this crisply written new play by Rita Ippolit leaps off the page and demands attention right from the start. It is full of wit and humour.

The acting is superb. There are three outstanding performances by Julia Rufey (Masha), Julia Munrow (Olga) and Teddy Walker (Alana).

There are lots of interesting insights into family life as well as some telling observations on Anglo-Russian relations.

One of the characters is a trans woman. This has been a toxic issue in the last year or two. But Alana comes over in a very positive light and even Olga, initially transphobic, is won over in the end.

A hugely entertaining 50 minutes. Highly recommended.
