Chekhov's Three Sisters and Woolf's Orlando

By Anton Chekhov and Virginia Woolf Adapted by Sarah Ruhl

Paperback £16.99

Adaptations of two classic works through the unique lens of award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl.

Preserving Woolf's vital ideas and lyrical tone, Ruhl's adaptation of Virginia Woolf's gender-bending, period-hopping novel brings to the stage the life of an Elizabethan nobleman who's magically transformed into an immortal woman.

In her fresh translation of Three Sisters, the Anton Chekhov classic of ennui and frustration, Ruhl employs her signature lyricism and elegant understanding of intimacy to reveal the discontent felt by fretful Olga, unhappy Masha, and idealistic Irina as they long to leave rural Russia for the ever-alluring Moscow.
