Stream Inua Ellams’ Three Sisters with #NationalTheatreAtHome
Posted on: 2nd December 2020
You can now stream Three Sisters at home with #NationalTheatreAtHome
Following a successful run of #NationalTheatreAtHome in which audiences were able to watch pre-recorded performances for a limited time, the National Theatre has now created an online streaming service. This service allows you to watch an exclusive collection of unforgettable British theatre, with more plays being added every month, so there’s always something new to look forward to.
Included in this collection is Three Sisters. Chekhov’s hard-hitting play was re-imagined by performer, poet, and playwright Inua Ellams and set in Nigeria.
Owerri, 1967, on the brink 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 production premiered at the National Theatre in December 2019 and ran until February 2020. To find out more about Three Sisters, click here.
