Frustrated by their small-town existence, the Prozorov family long to return to Moscow. But as relationships, duty and misguided optimism take hold they soon find their dreams drifting further away from them. Fusing imaginative staging, evocative physicality and Filter's trademark use of sound, this brand new production distils the essence of Chekhov's classic.
Theatre company Filter combine their flair and exuberance with Director Sean Holmes' passion and precision to delve beneath the surface and explore one family's search for ever-elusive happiness.
This ground-breaking partnership has proved a winning formula in the past with both Twelfth Night (RSC) and Brecht's Caucasian Chalk Circle (National) receiving great critical acclaim.
