"... a fleet new version..." Observer; "... careful, sensitive and unostentatious..." The Times" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Anton Chekhov (1860-19040 is one of the world's greatest playwrights. His four masterpieces, The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard, are rarely absent from the stage. Indeed, this will be the second high-profile production of Three Sisters in London this year... Nicholas Wright's Vincent in Brixton won rave reviews at the National and in the West End last year and opens in New York in April. Earlier work includes the West End hit, Cressida, with Michael Gambon, Mrs Klein at the National Theatre and in the West End, and adaptations of John Gabriel Borkman (with Paul Scofield and Vanessa Redgrave), Naked with Juliette Binoche and Lulu with Anna Friel. All are published by NHB. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I bought this as it's part of the reading list for a playwriting course that I'm currently undertaking.

All I can say is that it's better than horlicks. Those with any worries will find this work a blessing as reading it will instill an instant sleep-like calm. Certainly those facing an uncertain future who find themselves suffering sleepless nights, will find an immediate peace just reading the synopsis with the main heavier works being saved for when you really can't sleep and the bailiffs are knocking on your door.

Indeed, I'm sure even the most ardent and committed insomniac could benefit from delving into the pages. However, a word of warning, please don't read this work prior to driving a motor vehicle or operating any hazardous machinery as it's certain to cause instant drowsiness.

I can't wait until the publishers bring this out in liquid form.

This L.A. Theatre Works production is of another competent translation by Christopher Hampton, this time of Chekhov's play about unrequited or unsatisfactory love and the pursuit of illusory happiness. This is a good quality recording of a live performance in a theatre with an audience, a fact which some listeners may not like but I found to be little different to being in the auditorium myself. There do not appear to be many recordings of Chekhov's major plays, let alone his other work, but this one fulfills the need admirably. One play not yet in the LATW repertoire is Uncle Vanya; let's hope it will appear soon.

The play is wonderful, but what I want to review is this edition - Michael Frayn's translation is excellent and the introduction is really fascinating as well as invaluable if you're studying the text for Theatre Studies or Drama. Nick Worrall provides a commentary looking at the themes of the play, Chekhov's background and theatre in the early 20th century, various (and varied) critical opinions and descriptions of past productions of the play (a life-saver!). He writes unpretentiously, clearly and with an fantastic understanding of the play

Format: Paperback
This play can be read on so many levels. I take it to represent the art of conversation. If you pay close attention the play seems to focus on it's characters' intrinsic inclination to speak over eachother.
In addition it highlights the 3 sisters' (Masha, Irini ang Olga) longing for what they do not have. It's like the Russian equivalent of the American dream. The characters long for a better future.
But is this play a comedy or a tragedy?
