SYNOPSIS:

Three Sisters poignantly conveys the lives, struggles, loves and secret desires of sisters Masha, Olga and Irina and their somewhat ineffective brother Andrei. Set in a mythological provincial town in the late 1800s, Russia, we see their life unfold in front of our eyes. On the surface, The Three Sisters is a charming and endearing story but on further examination feelings of hopelessness, anguish and dissatisfaction are unapologetically evoked. The very emotions, that a decade later, would tear Russia apart and leave her in a state of political upheaval for years to come.

Chekhov's lifelong desire to live in Moscow was curtailed due to his ill health and in The Three Sisters the words "to Moscow, to Moscow" appear frequently in the dialogue – an analogy of his yearning to live there and a reminder of the unattainable and something lost. The Three Sisters is a gem. It bravely explores the human condition and our ability or inability to survive and adapt. It is both funny and sad. It is humbling and frustrating and within the memory of better days, in another time, we can expose ourselves.
