New York City
Less Than Rent Theatre presents Little Town Blues, a modern riff on Chekhov’s Three Sisters, by James Presson and Rachel Buethe, directed by James Presson.
A turbo-charged tragicomedy with a satirical edge, Little Town Blues takes a hard look at what it means to be a young American in the 21st century. Drawing from influences as wide-ranging and varied as Anton Chekhov, John Updike, and Aaron Sorkin, the play delves into the emotional complexities of young love, intense friendship, and the end of adolescence, while never putting aside the absurdity of living in a world governed by iPhones, laptops, and text messaging. Navigating through delight and devastation, the boarding students of Deforest-Martin Prep rage against the machine of structured academia with the fire of a teenage rebel and the depth of a Russian poet.
Final performance: December 17, 2023
