Critically acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago stages Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, a tragicomic story about the decay of a privileged family grappling with the changes of a modern world. Following the death of their army officer father, the Moscow-born and bred Prozorov siblings find themselves living in a remote provincial town, trapped inside the memories of their glorious past. Only the proximity of a nearby artillery post and the company of its officers make their existence bearable. As they fumble for purpose admist the clutter of awkward suitors, clumsy birthday presents, absurd squabbles and raging house fires, only one desire remains undimmed: to return to Moscow! Featured as the main attraction of The New York Chekhov Festival, performances will take place at the quaint and antique Balcony Theater located at West Park Presbyterian Church.
Featuring: Reanna Armellino, Ella Ayberk, Hazen Cuyler, Michael Donaldson, James Fordyce, Toni Goldman, Ariel Polanco, Matt Raines, Jake Robertson, Flavio Romeo, David A. Russell, Jo Anne Sellers, and Di Zhu
