About the Play:

The Three Sisters is a full-length drama by Anton Chekhov, adapted by David Mamet from the literal translation by Vlada Chernomirdik. This poignant story of three provincial sisters who long with all their hearts to go to Moscow is considered by many critics to be the finest drama of the 20th century. It has featured many of the world's great actresses and actors in the roles of Olga, Masha, Irina and Vershinin.

The Three Sisters focuses on the lives of three sisters, Olga, Masha, and Irina, young women of the Russian gentry who attempt to carve-out a meaningful existence in their small garrison town. They try to fill their days in order to construct a life that feels meaningful while surrounded by a procession of military men, servants, husbands, suitors, and lovers, all of whom constitute a distraction from the passage of time and from the sisters' ever-present dream to return to their beloved Moscow.

The David Mamet adaptation of The Three Sisters premiered in 1990 by the Atlantic Theater Company in Burlington, Vermont.

Cast: 6 women, 9 men

What people say:

"Mamet's ear is famously impeccable, the dialogue is always authentic and convincing ... [This adaptation] will help to undermine our silly critical notions of 'definitive' Chekhov. Mamet has made me rethink the play." — The New Republic

"Audacious, consistently arresting." — Chicago-Sun Times
