They are three of the most famous siblings in theatre – and they’ve now been updated for the 21st century by the award-winning young playwright Anya Reiss.

Holliday Grainger, star of Mike Newell’s Great Expectations and The Borgias, heads a cast also including Paul McGann and Olivia Hallinan, from Lark Rise to Candleford, in a new version of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters that will premiere in London next month.

Instead of languishing a long way from Moscow, the sisters Irina, Olga and Masha now live in the British ex-pat community of an unspecified Middle Eastern country to account for the isolation of the Russian original and the snobbery towards the locals.

And Grainger, 25, who will next shoot the long-awaited film version of Tulip Fever, said it was the lure of Chekhov with the modern twist that has brought her back to theatre for the first time since she appeared at the Donmar five years ago.

I really love the play and I’ve been wanting to do stage for ages. This is my second or third time auditioning for a version so third time lucky,” she said.

She plays the youngest daughter, Irina, who “is the voice of positivity and youth at the start of the play but at the end she’s almost as cynical and jaded as her sisters – I feel like that is what happens to us all”.

Olivia Hullinan, 29, whose previous roles include the TV adaptation of Julie Burchill’s Sugar Rush, said there was female solidarity in the rehearsal room. “Holliday and I have sort of known each other for years. We have mutual friends and we both started in kids’ television. We really just clicked. And Anya’s such an exciting playwright.”

And Emily Taaffe, 30, said: “It’s good to play parts of young women written by a young woman as opposed to by someone who has no idea what a young woman is.”

It is Reiss’s second venture into Chekhov, after The Seagull, since she was named most promising playwright at the 2010 Evening Standard Theatre Awards for Spur of the Moment.

“I’ve learned a lot about the way to write through having to study the way someone writes so carefully,” she said.

And they had “lucked out” with the cast. “I’m sitting in a room with Paul McGann from Doctor Who and Withnail and I. I don’t know how I’m supposed to work.”

Three Sisters runs at the Southwark Playhouse from April 3 to May 3.

”  Jeremy Irons, Holliday Grainger and Geraldine Chaplin are the actors he’d like to work with again. Irons, because working with him is like traveling, Grainger because he misses the scenes they shared on the set of The Borgias, Chaplin because François has always been her fan. […] ”

Paul McGann will star alongside Olivia Hallinan and Holliday Grainger in Anya Reiss’ new adaptation of Three Sisters when it opens at Southwark Playhouse next month.

The production of Chekhov’s classic, which has been reworked for the 21st century by the award-winning playwright, will run from 3 April to 3 May at the venue.

McGann, who plays Vershinin in the production, was last seen on the London stage in Butley at the Duchess Theatre. While the actor has also appeared on stage in productions including Helen at Shakespeare’s Globe and Mourning Becomes Electra at the National Theatre, he is best known for his screen work in television series including Luther, Hornblower and Ripper Street as well as films including Withnail And I.

Hallinan and Grainger are also well-known for their screen credits, which for Hallinan include Lark Rise To Candleford and Sugar Rush, and for Grainger include Renaissance drama The Borgias and the film adaptation of Great Expectations. Grainger, who plays youngest sister Irina, returns to the London stage for the first time since her 2009 performance in Dimetos at the Donmar Warehouse. Playing her oldest sister Olga, Hallinan has previously appeared in productions including Precious Little Talent at the Trafalgar Studios and Herding Cats at the Hampstead Theatre.

The trio are joined in the cast by Emily Taaffe as the third and final sister Masha. Taaffe’s previous stage credits include The Tempest, Twelfth Night and The Comedy Of Errors for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and The King James Bible and The Veil at the National Theatre.

Completing the cast are David Carlyle (Carpe Diem, National Theatre), Emily Dobbs (The Seagull, Southwark Playhouse), Michael Garner (The Merry Wives Of Windsor, Shakespeare’s Globe), Dudley Rogers (Titanic, Southwark Playhouse), Broadchurch’s Joe Sims, Tom Ross-Williams, Jane Thorne, and Thom Tuck.

The production will open at Southwark Playhouse following the current run of The A To Z Of Mrs P starring Frances Ruffelle, which closes on 29 March.

01

A story of incredibly well-off people doing terribly bad things, Posh feels very timely – and we have the first look at the dapper and dangerous gents starring in the new film from Lone Scherfig, director of An Education.

The beautiful boys in penguin suits include Max Irons and Sam Claflin as Miles and Alistair, first years at Oxford University determined to join the notorious Riot Club – a place that can make or break your time in higher education and, quite possibly, life. During the course of a night at the Bull’s Head pub, ambition and avarice lead them down a dark path.

Posh is scripted by Laura Wade, adapted from her own play, which opened during the 2010 General Election, where audiences and critics weren’t shy in drawing comparisons between the fictional Riot Club and the Bullingdon Club, of which Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson were members. Yet Scherfig says there is no direct correlation in characters; we won’t be pointing to garrulous but sinister men with straw blond hair thinking “He seems familiar…”

“No, not at all,” says the Danish director. “Also, if you see things that are horrific in this film you shouldn’t blame the Bullingdon Club. Or the other way around… You may see things that are charming in Posh and think maybe that is the way the Bullingdon Club is as well!”

The aim, according to Scherfig, is to make a broader film about power and class – one that grips and amuses, as well as provokes. “It’s more dynamic and energetic and dramatic and tough than the films I’ve done previously.”

Audiences can find out for themselves when Posh opens on September 19, also starring Holliday Grainger, Sam Reid, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer and Jessica Brown-Findlay. (@)
