Sport for Jove’s production of Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov with a new translation by Karen Vickery opened on the 30 July at the Seymour Centre to rave reviews.

“…the hysterical Kenneth Moraleda (Kulyghin), who steals every one of his scenes with his elegant physical comedy and immaculate timing.

“…there is not a single weak link in the cast.”

The AU Review – Emily Saint-Smith FULL REVIEW

“Justin Stewart-Cotta as the ennui-drenched and thoughtless romantic is the production’s yin to pompous klutzy cuckold Kenneth Moraleda’s yang and both are riveting to watch.”

“uniform excellence of the performances make for a remarkable experience”

“…the company and director Kevin Jackson have conjured a rich, funny, poignant and fresh theatrical experience out of this 100+ year-old favourite. Its exceptional clarity lies partly in the staging and partly in the performances and either way, rarely will three-and-some hours pass as quickly or as pleasurably as these. Recommended.”

Diana Simmonds – Stage Noise  FULL REVIEW

“Noel Hodda is also inventive as the old doctor with a conscience lost to drink, as is Kenneth Moraleda as the cuckolded teacher.”

“Sport for Jove has hit another six.”

Martin Portus -Stage Whispers FULL REVIEW

“The delightful ensemble of twenty diverse actors (resplendent in costumes by Emma Vine) is teeming with vigour, and evenly impressive.”
