iPhones, expletives and fabulous style – Three Sisters is attacked, nurtured and reborn in Anya Reiss’ modern adaptation and brought into the Middle East. A family stuck miles from home, almost too frightened to attempt going back, with a stage full of people and yet all they talk about is how alone they are.
In a strong cast special mention goes to Holliday Grainger, whose performance as youngest sister Irina is especially impressive. She beautifully captures the spirit of Irina whilst maintaining her sweetness, even as her naivety and innocence give way to cynicism.
Grainger, Hallinan (quite some stage presence) and Taaffe make an attractive, intense-eyed trio, cleverly framed by Bolam in some startling tableaux.
