THREE SISTERS COME AND GO
A tragicomedy drawing on the texts of Anton Chekhov, Samuel Beckett & Julia Kristeva
"Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that."
– Nell, Endgame
THREE SISTERS COME AND GO follows the lives of the three archetypal women of Chekhov's plays read through the lens of Beckett's comic take on the existential dilemma, and Julia Kristeva's insight regarding the transformation of despair and loss into joy and acceptance. Bound to living together, each of the sisters is comically obsessed with being the most unhappy of the group.
