Three Sisters

In a remote little town in turn of the century Russia, three sisters - Olga (Jeanne Watts), Irina (Louise Purnell), and Masha (Joan Plowright) - and their brother Andrei (Derek Jacobi) fantasize about their return to their former home in Moscow. For them Moscow is a city of dreams, magnetism and inspiration - a far cry from their current life - an oppressive and overbearing existence, devoid of hope. As they muddle through life, they hold on to the memory of a place they once knew and the promise of a better life. But as time passes and hope begins to fade, tragedy strikes the ill-fated family. Adapted from Anton Chekov's play "The Three Sisters".
