"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.
There will be six, singular bright flashes used during the performance, in addition to the use of theatrical haze.
Three Sisters (Ruhl) is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
