Description:

Transplanted from their beloved Moscow to a provincial Russian town, three sisters—Olga, Masha, Irina— yearn for the cityof their childhood, where they always imagined their dreams fulfilled. As those fantasies are ripped away, the sisters must cope with their despair and find a new way forward. Discover the humor and heartbreak of one of the world’s greatest plays, revealed through the lyricism of a leading voice in contemporary theatre: two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl.

By Anton Chekhov
English version by Sarah Ruhl
