Following a West End Season at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket last year with Uncle Vanya and Life & Fate, the Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg is to return with Chekhov's Three Sisters, playing in London for 10 performances from 19 June at the Vaudeville Theatre, directed by Lev Dodin.

Dodin said, "Chekhov speaks with passion and eloquence about the hopelessness of our life, about the tragic discrepancies between our yearnings and reality, about the vital importance of staying true to oneself and preserving your dignity. Three Sisters is a play about people with ideals. We understand the stern language in which life speaks to us—and in this life we must stay true to ourselves and preserve our personal dignity at any cost."
