Three Sisters

The Maly Drama Theatre / Russia

“COMPELLING. We are inside Chekhov’s world and hearing his voice.”

— The Boston Globe

A luminous retelling of Chekhov's masterpiece

One of Russia’s premiere theatre companies presents this luminous retelling of Chekhov’s masterpiece, which follows three sisters who are forced to leave Moscow for life in a provincial town. The family bravely confronts the tragic rift between personal desires and harsh, everyday realities. In this surprisingly sexy and emotionally raw production, Three Sisters gives us the chance to reflect on issues of economic recession and class disparity through the lens of the personal, cultural and political changes that shook Russia at the end of the 19th century. Directed by renowned director Lev Dodin and performed in Russian with English surtitles, this staging is a testament to the legacy of one of the world’s greatest playwrights.
