Chekhov felt of the first production of his Three Sisters play that Stanislavski's direction had run roughshod over his script and squelched the subtleties of his characters and thus the play. It was received with mixed results but became a classic in the long view.

The struggle is real for Olga, Masha, and Irina: siblings who are NOT super thrilled to be stuck in rural Russia circa 1900 (laaame). In Halley Feiffer’s contemporary reimagining of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, we follow the joys and heartbreaks of one lovably dysfunctional family over the course of several pivotal years in a world that proves to be eerily similar to the one we live in today. This new black comedy tackles the absurdity of the privileged class and the power of love in a fresh twist on a classic tale that reveals itself to be far more relevant, than like, ever before.
