WHAT WE KNOW: AN AMERICAN RETELLING OF CHEKHOV'S THREE SISTERS

Genre: Classical, Comedy, Other
©Joe Kramm
Adapted from Anton Chekhov, directed by Matthew MacNelly

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.

Cast: Jennifer Allcott, Eric Chase, Yvonne Cone, Robert Davenport, Sara Dobrinich, Kelsey Kurz, Matthew MacNelly, Jennifer Martina & Michael Moreno


About the Company: Shrunken Shakespeare Company

"We, the Shrunken Shakespeare Company, have a clear yet convoluted purpose. It is our mission to take a classical theatre piece, (primarily Shakespeare) and shorten it, devise it, turn it over, scramble it up, and throw it in the air. Then, we put it on the stage in a way that you've never thought of.

Shrunken Shakespeare Company's goal is to create ensemble driven Classical Plays that are relatable to a younger modern audience and incorporate many types of performance, while still staying true to the text. It is our mission to take Classical Plays, reduce them to edited hour and a half to two hour versions, and perform them in environments that affect every aspect of the production. Thus, each play chosen will depend on the space it is being performed in. From that point on the play will be dependent on that environment; everything from costumes and lighting to casting requirements, music and dance requirements, the concept of the show, and maybe even what type of drinks are served!
