Encouraged first and foremost by the fact that we have quite a few fantastic actresses in our ensemble, we decided on one of the most significant plays in the history of literature in order to revive Olga, Masha, Irina, Natalia Ivanovna and other Chekhov's (anti)hero(ine)s on stage, but this time with Jelena Miholjević, Dijana Vidušin, Ivana Roščić, Bojana Gregorić Vejzović... The eternal play about the pursuit of happiness and a different kind of life, a multi-layered classic about unrequited love, surpressed emotions and unspoken thoughts, refuses to moralize, accuse or preach, but rather tries to understand man, inconstant in his weaknesses and virtues. Chekhov is not one of those writers who created characters bigger than themselves and ourselves, quite the opposite - he is entirely emerged in the closeness, the warmth, unobtrusive wittiness and everyday sorrow. To bring closer his unique world to the audience today is by no means a simple task, which is why it is entrusted to the Macedonian theatre director Slobodan Unkovski, who staged hundreds of plays throughout his lengthy and rich career and is one of the most successful and, undoubtedly, the most award-winning directors in the region. Though he has directed on numerous stages of neighbouring countries and across Europe, from Belgrade and Ljubljana to Moscow and Athens, he has never staged a play in Croatia, which is why his ''Three Sisters'' are eagerly anticipated...

''Although we have witnessed various stagings of Chekhov in the last few decades, so far we have never met a type of humour that is continuously on the brink of such great vulnerability of the performer that it could move one to tears... (...) The Gavella Theatre's ensemble has remarkably successfully worked with the Macedonian director Slobodan Unkovski on the complexities of Chekhov's situations. (...) Filip Šovagović is phenomenal as the military doctor Chebutykin... Also brilliant is Ranko Zidarić as the icy cool, polite and even-tempered Vershinin...'' (Nataša Govedić, Novi list)

''Once again Gavella has a remarkable production. (...) is filled with warm humour, the type that frequently lies hidden within Chekhov himself. (...) Brilliant in the title roles are Jelena Miholjević, Dijana Vidušin and Ivana Roščić.'' (Bojana Radović, Večernji list)

''Unkovski was, of course, guided by Chekhov's still problematical evaluation of his plays as comedies. He couldn't fight back the tears, therefore he intensified the laughter to a maximum degree and made the effort to get precise and clear, at times masterfully performed reasons for it from the ensemble. (...) Each member of the ensemble (...) got the opportunity here to perform to the best of their abilities.'' (Igor Ružić, T-portal)

''Unkovski treats the text as if it were written yesterday. He finds Chekhov first and foremost in the present moment. (...) We have seen, therefore, ''Three Sisters'' with fourteen roles, each of whom was individually polished and moulded into a diverse scheme of relationships.'' (Tomislav Čadež, Jutarnji list)
