Chekhov’s Three Sisters in January 2008

January seems like a long way off but William Rossiter has been in touch to remind me about his one day course on Chekhov’s Three Sisters on January 26 at the University of Liverpool. Timed to coincide with Liverpool Everyman Theatre’s production of Diane Samuels’ new play, Three Sisters on Hope Street, the day-course provides a fresh look at a key work by one of the fathers of modern drama, and will suit anyone with an interest in theatre, in Chekhov, or anyone intending to see Samuels’ reworking. Samuels’ play, incidentally, relocates Chekhov’s action to the Jewish community in postwar Liverpool.

‘MASHA: But what’s the point of it all?

TUZENBAKH: The point? Look, it’s snowing out there. What’s the point of that?’ (Act II)
