Three Sisters

Three Sisters at the Lyric Hammersmith in which the samovar is replaced by the electric kettle and other innovations. Romola Garai is charm itself (Eve beware) and the techno-production an unexpected success with only a few wobbles here and there. The youthful audience almost as fun to watch as the stage. Much is forgiven when you're only spending £10 a ticket.
