It’s the not-so-swinging sixties in a Dunoon naval base. Three sisters, Olive, Maddy, and Renee have spent the last eleven years looking longingly across the Clyde Estuary. Surrounded by military suitors, overbearing in-laws, and worthy Presbyterians, they yearn for London’s Carnaby Street and the love, culture and thrills they are denied in Argyllshire. Will they ever escape?

Following his acclaimed adaptations of The Cherry Orchard and Uncle Vanya, John Byrne (Tutti Frutti, The Slab Boys) turns his attention to Chekhov’s tragi-comedy about dashed hopes and unrequited love, in this brand new show for Tron Theatre Company.
