Photo Flash: Inside Opening Night of Shrunken Shakespeare Company's WHAT WE KNOW

Shrunken Shakespeare Company presents the world premiere of What We Know: An American Retelling of Chekhov's Three Sisters through December 20, 2014 at Access Theater's Gallery (380 Broadway at White Street). Matthew MacNelly directs. Check out an inside look at opening night below!

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.

The cast includes Jennifer Allcott (Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare Santa Cruz), Eric Chase (Real Danger, Emerging Artists), Yvonne Cone (Lear opposite Paul Sorvino), Robert Davenport ("Twin Peaks", The Chocolate War), Sara Dobrinich (The Gefiltefish Chronicles), Kelsey Kurz (Broadway: Merchant of Venice), Matthew MacNelly (Glengarry Glen Ross, La Jolla Playhouse), Jennifer Martina (Lear opposite Paul Sorvino) and Michael Moreno (Twelfth Night, Queens Players).

Shrunken Shakespeare Company is known for its inventive take on classical plays, including its recent Lear, adapted and directed by Paul Sorvino; The Two Gentlemen of Verona set in a dive bar and A Midsummer Night's Dream: A Hipster Circus.

Previews of What We Know begin December 4, 2014 before an official press opening on December 8th. Performances continue through December 20th, with a varied schedule at the Access Theater's Gallery (380 Broadway, at White Street. Subway: N/R or 6 to Canal).
