By Anton Chekhov
Adaptation by Sarah Ruhl

Emerson Studio Theatre
Trapped in a provincial Russian town after the death of their father, three sisters lament the passing of better times and long for the excitement of Moscow. One of them has married a local teacher; another has become a teacher herself; the third has settled for a dull job in the local telegraph office.
Their principal interest is focused on the officers of the local regiment, of which their father had been commandant, men who bring a sense of sophistication and the world outside to their suppressed existence. In the end the fateful pattern of their lives is made clear—their dreams will be denied but, despite all, there must always be hope, however futile, and the ways of the world are to be accepted, if not understood.
"Chekhov once said that life is both complex and simple, and Three Sisters, by mining the utter, giggly absurdity of its characters, captures that paradox pristinely. —Time Out Chicago.
