About the Author:

Visionary young director Benedict Andrews, lauded in Berlin and Sydney (including for The Wars of the Roses with Cate Blanchett), returns to the Young Vic after his triumphant The Return of Ulysses in 2011.

Review:

"Right up there with the best ever Three Sisters (by Laurence Olivier, Jonathan Miller, Trevor Nunn, Field Day and the Katona Josef in Budapest) but a sensational breakthrough and a poetic revelation at the same time, and in its own gloriously idiosyncratic manner." Michael Coveney, What’s On Stage (5 stars)
"Andrews has come up with a bracingly original vision: he turns the play inside out, bashes it around, and drops in anachronisms, yet his approach yields revelatory results. In the end, against the odds, this is a moving and absorbing Three Sisters" Evening Standard
"This version does not set out to endear itself to traditionalists has a jagged energy and a powerful sense of conviction" The Independent
"Energising, modern grabs some of the most thorny Chekhov questions about human existence with a firm unsentimental grip" Huffington Post
"Profoundly moving this is Chekhov refreshed and reimagined." Guardian
"One of the most exciting Chekhovs in years often hilarious yet, crucially, full of moments of stillness and pain" Metro
"The textbook opposite of a cosy West End revival gives a chill distillation of a comfortless vision present in the original" The Telegraph
"Traditionalists may fulminate, but I was blown away." Daily Mail
"A commendable job of reinvigorating the play, making it readily accessible by injecting the dialogue with suitably modern concepts." London Theatre
