We Are Three Sisters, a new play by Blake Morrison based on Chekhov’s The Three Sisters, will tour the UK this autumn, opening at the Viaduct Theatre in Halifax, Yorkshire.

The Russian text will relocate to Yorkshire and feature the Brontë sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, in the central roles instead of Natasha, Masha and Olga. Casting is yet to be announced.

We Are Three Sisters will open at the Viaduct Theatre in Halifax, Yorkshire, on 9th September and will tour 10 more venues, finishing at the York Theatre Royal on 26th November. Group rates vary between venues.
