Set between the apparently opposite poles of Chekhov and Beckett, Three Sisters Come and Go follows the lives of the three archetypal Chekhovian women and their desire to reconstitute their lives beyond their sense of profound loss. They inhabit a space in which "character" is the very thing that they cannot escape. Yet, in the still geometry of Beckett's Come and Go the narrative escapes the stage, opening a door to ambiguity, inviting both actor and audience to examine a trajectory of refreshed desire.
Three Sisters Come and Go was conceived and directed by Orietta Crispino. The piece features Liza Cassidy, Claire Helene and Jackie Lowe.
'Come and Go' is presented through special arrangement with Georges Borchardt, Inc. on behalf of the Estate of Samuel Beckett.
Three Sisters Come and Go is made possible, in part, by funds from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
