Three Sisters Q&A

19 Feb 2021
Inua Ellams

On Friday 19 February 2021 at 8PM, award-winning writer Inua Ellams will appear alongside the director and cast members of Three Sisters for an exclusive Q&A session about the production.

Chekov’s iconic characters are relocated to Nigeria in this bold new adaptation which premiered at the National Theatre in a Fuel co-production in 2019 and is now available to stream online (details below).

Owerri, 1967, on the bring of the Biafran Civil War. Lolo, Nne Chukwu, and Udo are grieving the loss of their father. Months before, two ruthless military coups plunged the country into chaos. Fuelled by foreign intervention, the conflict encroaches on their provincial village, and the sisters long to return to their former home in Lagos.

This Q&A is an exclusive event chaired by Fuel’s Founder Kate McGrath and Fuel’s Head of Programme Anthony Gray. Audiences will have the opportunity to ask Inua, Nadia, and the cast of the show questions about the bold new production which received rave reviews from The Stage, Time Out, The Guardian, and What’s On Stage to name a few.
