ABOUT THE PLAY: Anton Chekhov’s classic work of dramatic realism, Three Sisters is both epic and intimate, funny and tragic, and presents one of the most complex studies of human condition and relationships in modern drama. It tells the story of the Prozorov family—sisters Olga, Masha, and Irina, and their brother Andrei—and the people in love with them, as their dreams for the future waste away over four years in the Russian countryside.
