About

"COMPELLING… WE ARE INSIDE CHEKHOV'S WORLD AND HEARING HIS VOICE."
--The Boston Globe
 
Three Sisters
 
Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg, one of Russia's leading theater companies, presents this luminous retelling of legendary playwright Anton Chekhov's masterpiece Three Sisters. Renowned director Lev Dodin directs this radiant, complex play with rich insight into Chekhov's eloquent understanding of resignation, longing, and love.
 
Following the death of their father, three sisters are forced to leave Moscow for life in a provincial town. They bravely confront the tragic discrepancies between yearnings and reality, and a saga unfolds about the vital importance of staying true to oneself while struggling with the burden of everyday life. The play examines the hierarchical and emotional effects of losing status and wealth while coming to terms with changes in modern society.
 
Performed in Russian with projected English titles.
 
Recommended for age 14 and up.

Performance Timing: Approximately 3 hours, including one intermission.
