"You say: life is beautiful.
But what if it only seems that way."

In a country house in Russia at the end of the 19th century, three sisters long to return to the Moscow of their youth. Meanwhile, their sister-in-law wages domestic war. Soldiers in a battalion stationed in town long for the sisters. And across Russia, a cataclysm is brewing. Sarah Ruhl brings fresh urgency to Chekhov's tragicomic masterpiece in her lyrical translation.

Three Sisters (Ruhl) is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
