What happens when you take a famous Anton Chekhov play and set it in 1890s Queensland?
The answer lies in Three Sisters One Brother, written and directed by Ross McGregor at The Actors’ Hub this June.
Adapted from Chekhov’s Three Sisters, the play has been given an Aussie flavour to suit a variety of conditions, characters, historical facts and politics.
The 1890s was a decade of amazing progress in Australia – women were allowed to vote in South Australia a year after New Zealand, there was a shearer’s strike for fairer pay, the Labor Party was born and electricity started to be introduced. Plus there were bushfires, droughts and squatters, which really highlighted the grit of the people.
Three Sisters One Brother plays 7pm June 27, 28, 29 and 30. Tickets are $30, $25 concession – book at www.trybooking.com/VTCA.
The Actors’ Hub is at 129 Kensington Street, East Perth.
