Three Sisters Educational Resource Pack


Anton Chekhov’s original story of Three Sisters is set in Russia, in the 19th century, during a time of upheaval. Inua Ellams’ adaptation is set in Nigeria in the 1960s, a country struggling with the legacy of colonialism. Independence brings the possibility of change but white Europeans are still in the background, pulling strings and reaping the benefits, nothing has changed.
