Janine Watson is set to star in Sport for Jove’s production of Three Sisters, Directed by Kevin Jackson.
Anton Checkhov’s Russian classic centres on three sisters, Olga (Watson), Masha and Irina whom live in a small country town with their brother Andrei. Plagued with futility, the sisters long for their former life in Moscow. Their growing dissatisfaction is exacerbated when their brother marries and his wife slowly encroaches on the sisters home and private refuge.
Three Sisters is part of Sport For Jove’s ‘The Anton Project‘, that will see theatre goers engage with and gain a greater understanding of the culture that informed Checkhov to write the play. As a study of Checkhov’s life and works the theatre company will hold sessions on Russian history, writing, dance and cooking.
