A new play by Tena Stivicic, directed by Howard Davies.
From the remnants of monarchy to Communism, democracy, war and the EU: Croatia 1945–2011. Set against a country in turmoil, 3 WINTERS creates the portrait of an eclectic family, held together by the courage to survive.
The Kos family argue, adapt, and fall in and out of love. World after world is erected and torn down around them. The one constant is the ivy-clad house in Zagreb, built by aristocrats, partitioned, owned by all, owned by a few; witness to four increasingly educated and independent generations of women. But when the family assemble for Lucia's wedding, Alisa learns that her nouveau-riche brother-in-law has bought the once nationalized house. For the bride this is progress, for her sister it's a shady act of greed. For their principled parents, finally, it's one battle too many.
Tena Stivicic is a Croatian-born playwright who lives in London.
