Lung Ha Theatre Company and Sibelius Academy of the University of The Arts, Folk Music Department (Helsinki) present Three Sisters

“When Father was alive, this place was packed… there was heat, there was laughter and life.”

Lung Ha Theatre Company’s first production of 2018 opens at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, with a new version of Anton Chekhov’s classic play Three Sisters by Adrian Osmond. After Edinburgh the play will tour to Perth Theatre and Glasgow, where the tour date is two performances at the Citizens Theatre, on Wednesday 28 March.

There are strong Scandinavian connections to this new production, collaboration with the world-renowned Sibelius Academy of the University of The Arts (Helsinki, Finland), direction by Finnish born Maria Oller and music composed by Finnish composer Anna-Karin Korhonen. In this international production Lung Ha Theatre Company are delighted to be working again with Adrian Osmond, on this, his third production for the company, his previous plays were The Hold and Antigone. Set design is by Karen Tennent and costume design by Alison Brown. Assistant Director is Fiona Mckinnon – FST Assistant Director Bursary Scheme.

The 21 cast members have been drawn from Lung Ha’s regular company and include Emma McCaffrey (Olga), Nicola Tuxworth (Masha), Emma Clark (Irina), Kenneth Ainslie (Andrey), Paul Harper (Vershinin) and John Edgar (Ivan Romanovich Chebutykin).

This is a play of life, love, loss, dreams, whimsy, hope – real and false – of moving and of remaining where you are. Olga, Masha and Irina long for the glamour of Moscow; they long to be free of the life they have been ‘given’ in provincial Russia, to escape the countryside and return to the society to which they belong. But with the constant visits of soldiers and dignitaries, of family, friends and ‘acquaintances’, with work to be done, with marriages to be honoured will they ever be free of the family’s legacy and find fulfilment?

2017 was a busy year for Lung Ha with two outstanding productions, the world premiere and award winning Dr Stirlingshire’s Discovery – in co-production with Grid Iron; and in partnership with RZSS Edinburgh Zoo, the Royal Lyceum Theatre and part of the Edinburgh Science Festival and the return of Linda McLean’s brilliant Thingummy Bob.

Lung Ha Theatre Company is the leading theatre company for people with learning disabilities in Scotland, and with a growing reputation internationally. #LHThreeSisters
