Three Sisters at Southwark Playhouse | Theatre review – 3 out of 5

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.

 

Three Sisters (Southwark Playhouse) – 4 out of 5

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.

 

Three Sisters, Southwark Playhouse – theatre review – 5 out of 5

Grainger, Hallinan (quite some stage presence) and Taaffe make an attractive, intense-eyed trio, cleverly framed by Bolam in some startling tableaux.

 



Added 16 stills from Three Sisters production :)

HOLLIDAY GRAINGER, OLIVIA HALLINAN, EMILY TAAFFE are about to star in Three Sisters at the Southwark Playhouse. I caught up with them during rehearsals to find out more about the show and themselves.

For those who may not be familiar with your work, can you tell me about yourself and some of your career highlights?

HG: I was first on stage in Dimetos at the Donmar Warehouse.  I learned so much and feel like the skills were transferrable to the TV and film I’ve done since, including Bonnie and Clyde, The Borgias and Great Expectations.

Three Sisters is an old Play about the class system in Russia. This production has been reworked for the 21st Century. How does it differ from the original?

HG: Although Anya has set our world in an ex pat community in the contemporary Middle East, I think Chekhov’s themes and feelings still emanate from her adaptation.

The play centres around three sisters who are very different from one another. Which of the characters do you identify most with yourself?

HG: I try to have Irina’s positivity and work ethic.. try.

If I asked your friends to describe you in three words, what might they say?

HG: grounded, genuine, spontaneous

What has been the funniest/most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you on stage?

HG: I once corpsed at the smell of mushroom soup in in a dinner scene. It was usually carrot and coriander. I had to miss my next few lines.

Do you have a favourite play or musical that means a lot to you?

HG: The Sound of Music

If you could be a man for the day, what theatre role would you like to have a go at playing?

HG: Iago
