“Life is a raspberry – one bite and it’s gone!”
Olga, Masha and Irina dream of returning to Moscow.
But life goes on – soldiers come and go, babies are born, there’s a fire, and a duel, and local girl Natasha invades the household. It’s time to act.
A bold and absurd new version of Chekhov’s tragicomic classic.
★★★★★ Laurence Strangio’s direction is flawless and deeply attuned to the text, … a production that anyone who cares about Beckett – or indeed acting – should rush to see. – Cameron Woodhead, The Age (on Krapp’s Last Tape)
