The Prozorov sisters fill the days in their provincial garrison town yearning for Moscow. The new regiment arrives with brazen fanfares and gleaming officers, beckoning with love, laughter, and above all hope. But in Chekhov's profoundly moving study of a family caught between a vanishing past and an impossible future, what escape can there be from the reality of life itself? Love disappoints, dreams fade, and time marches on.
Chekhov's masterful depiction of turn-of-the-century Russia on the cusp of great change has rightfully become one of the most prized plays in the theatrical canon. With a potent mix of high-stakes elements--passion, disillusionment, envy, adultery, birth, death, and practically everything in between--The Three Sisters presents a fierce, uncompromising view of humanity in its hope and humiliation. The rich characters carved from the writer's deep compassion are a virtual treasure trove for actors, while the play is a challenge few theater artists can resist.
