Open: 12/04/14- Close: 12/20/14 WHAT WE KNOW: AN AMERICAN RETELLING OF CHEKHOV'S THREE SISTERS
Civilized people are their own worst enemies. In this acerbically witty, sometimes jaded, yet always hopeful new play based on Chekhov's 'Three Sisters', nine actors explore the thrills, anguish and utter ridiculousness of every day life and relationships.

A new devised piece created by members of Shrunken Shakespeare Company; "What We Know" is an exploration in the beautiful and sometimes harsh complexity of human relationships and the parallels between Chekhov's society and our own. The ensemble has created an all new script and original music, incorporating their own experiences and personalities to build a uniquely personal theatrical experience.
