STORM IN A TEACUP (2014-2015)

Devised & performed by Hot Coals Productions

Directed by Alice Robinson

Inspired by Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

In an old, old house, there’s an old, old staircase and up that old, old staircase, there’s an old, old room, and in that old, old room are three old, OLD sisters.

This darkly comic and cartoon-like piece is a window into the quirky and tender world of three sisters as they fight the system to keep their independence.

In an old roomwhere words have lost their place, physical comedy, walking sticks and false teeth come to life.

No previous experience of Chekhov required.

Storm in a Teacup won huge praise when it performed at Park Theatre back in 2014. The show then toured both nationally and internationally for two years, to venues and festivals including; RADA, Brighton, Prague and Edinburgh Festivals and a UK rural tour. 

“…this big-hearted tale of companionship in later life… is a genuinely life-affirming show.”

Fringe Guru 


“Storm in a Teacup is witty, fast paced and highly original physical theatre. A perfect blend of humour and tragedy to reflect the decay of the human condition.”
