Fully-Immersive Production of Chekhov's Three Sisters in Brooklyn, Sept. 4-28
Re-imagined in a dystopian mid-21st Century Brooklyn where economic inequality and police surveillance have become the dominant social realities, audiences for Three Sisters are invited to seek refuge with the Prozorov family as they sing, dance, and philosophize their way through the night following actors through a magnificent historic building in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.
Built into the theatrical production is a social experiment. Tickets range from 99¢ to $99 as audiences can choose their own experience of the play by purchasing tickets by class levels. Tickets can be purchased online at: http://hittheatrethreesisters.bpt.me or at the venue, starting 30 minutes prior to curtain.
Experiences range from working alongside the servants as a Serf ($0.99 a ticket) and entering through the "Poor Door" of the building, to a luxury experience as a Tsar ($99 per ticket) where you will be showered with gifts and enjoy the finest seats in the building. Discounts are given for returning audience members so that they can experience the full social spectrum of the play.

Highly Impractical Theatre, a Brooklyn-based organization that creates site-specific theatre that is bold, immersive, and experiential. We produce and develop socially relevant plays for unconventional spaces and engage audiences in an active, sensory experience of stories. In the past we have created plays inspired by and performed in exhibits at the Brooklyn Museum, transformed the daily grind of the offices of a San Francisco marketing firm into surreal adventures, and brought to life the history of a small town in Oregon by inhabiting its founding farmstead.
Highly Impractical Theatre is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization.
