Three Sisters (Chekhov/Nelson)

By Anton Chekhov Translated by Richard Nelson, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

Paperback £16.99

After their father’s death, Olga, Masha, and Irina find life in their small Russian town stifling and hopeless. They long to return to Moscow, the bustling metropolis they left eleven years ago, but their brother Andrei’s gambling habits have trapped them in their small provincial lives.

As the seventh play in Theatre Communication Group's Classic Russian Drama Series, playwright Richard Nelson and translators of Russian literature Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky continue their collaboration with a masterful new translation of Chekhov’s exploration of yearning and disillusionment.

'Pevear and Volokhonsky are at once scrupulous translators and vivid stylists of English.' – James Wood, New Yorker
