Three Sisters casting announced

The cast of the upcoming production of Chekhov’s Three Sisters has been announced, and there are some familiar faces you may recognise from recent West End productions.

Joining the previously announced Pearl Chanda (Masha) and Patsy Ferran (Olga) are: Lois Chimimba (Natasha), Alexander Elliot (Vasily), Annie Firbank (Anfisa), Elliot Levey (Fyodor), Eric MacLennan (Ferapoint), Freddie Meredith (Andrey), Peter McDonald (Alexander), Sonny Poon Tip (Vladimir), Shubham Saraf (Nikolay), Akshay Sharan (Alexey), Alan Williams (Ivan) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Irina).

Patsy received rave reviews for her portrayal of Alma in Summer and Smoke, both when it began at the Almeida Theatre, and during its West End transfer. This show will see Patsy reunite with the Summer and Smoke director, Rebecca Frecknall.

Three Sisters is all about Olga (the eldest), Masha and Irina (the youngest). In a room in a house in a provincial town, these three sisters wait for their lives to begin. Do you ever wonder what would happen if we could live our lives all over again but be fully conscious of it the second time?  I bet we’d try to do everything differently, or at least would know to create a different world for ourselves…

The story has been adapted and updated by Cordelia Lynn, whose previous work includes One For Sorrow, Best Served Cold, Lela & Co and After The War. Her opera writing credits include Miranda and other vocal work includes Heave and The White Princess.

The show will be directed by Rebecca Frecknall, who’s also the Associate Director at the Almeida Theatre, where the production will run. Rebecca has already directed several successes recently, including the critically acclaimed show, Summer and Smoke, and was the resident director on Ink.

Three Sisters will run at the Almeida Theatre between 8 April –1 June 2019
