Created by renowned art and social justice group Platform, Three Sisters – a story from the climate future is an exploration of how people carry on in a dislocated world, suffering from the impact of climate change and repeated pandemics.
Set in New Abbey, just to the south of Dumfries, in the late 2030s, co-creators James Marriott and Lena Šimić have used the structure and sensibility of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters – a dissection of isolation, longing, and family ties – to explore a thriving community set against the backdrop of social and ecological collapse. But after 15 years of weathering storms, floods, and lockdowns, can this community survive itself?
Recorded on location at Kirkconnell House, near the River Nith in New Abbey, this evocative and richly textured four part drama follows the members of an ‘oddkin household’.
The story of this community asks:
How will we live under the impacts of climate change, with extreme weather events and so many forced to be refugees?
What shape will our altered society take? How will we love? Who will win, who will lose?
