About this show

The Three Sisters, by Anton Chekhov, depicts an entire village of unlucky lovers struggling with the bittersweet distance between reality and dreams. The three sisters: schoolmistress Olga, married Masha and idealistic Irina, are stuck in a backwater town, and long to get to Moscow where they imagine their lives will be transformed. This classic tale, seeped in longing, is given another look in a new version adapted by Sarah Ruhl, one of America's most acclaimed young playwrights, and author of In the Next Room (Or the Vibrator Play), Late: A Cowboy Song and The Clean House. Discover the humor and heartbreak of one of the world's great plays, retold by one of the most original voices in contemporary theatre.
