A beautiful and sad comedy directed by Sissela Kyle.
What happened to Olga, Masha and Irina? Did their dreams of love, freedom and a better life come true? Here we get to meet Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters again, many years older, in a newly written and independent play by Sofia Fredén.
- The idea of the older sisters has existed in me for many years and now it has finally become a reality. It feels like everyone involved; playwright, scenographer, costume, mask and not least the wonderful actors have stepped into a world where sadness and humor go hand in hand. I am enormously proud and happy about this funny and sad performance, says the play's director, Sissela Kyle.
Many years have passed when we see the three sisters again. They still live in the parental home, together with their adult nephew Bobik. Masha and Irina are longing for big sister Olga to retire soon, because after retirement they will finally live! The sisters are planning a party, and after the party they are really going to get away to the city of their childhood. But at the last moment everything collapses. What is really stopping the sisters from taking the plunge?
The three slightly older sisters reflect on the conditions and possibilities of freedom. Over the memory of a memory. And in a world filled with memories, where dreams, love and fears are stronger than ever.
The three sisters are portrayed by Maria Kulle, Jessica Liedberg and Siw Carlsson and as the nephew we see Emil Almén.
The play was rehearsed at the Riksteatern in the spring of 2021 and is a real theater gem filled with brilliant acting.
Three slightly older sisters is a co-production between the Riksteatern and the Swedish Theater in Helsinki, with a premiere at the Riksteatern in 2022.
