Three sisters, Orla, Marianne and Erin, dream of escaping their tedious suburban lives for a fresh start in America. It is Erin’s eighteenth birthday and, as the sun shines and guests assemble, everything for a fleeting moment feels possible.

Relocated from a Russian provincial town in 1900 to East Belfast in the 1990s, Lucy Caldwell’s version of Chekhov’s Three Sisters opened at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast in October 2016.
