Revisited Classics Stages Free Reading of Anton Chekhov's THREE SISTERS on 3/7
Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, co-adapted by Shawn Rene Graham and John-Martin Green is transposed to America in the early 1900s. Set on a cavalry outpost in rural Texas, this is the tale of a group of cultured, intelligent blacks in turn-of-the-century America observing the kind of entitlement that wealthy whites had always taken for granted, and the price they pay for that entitlement. The reading is on Monday, March 7, 2016 from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM.
John-Martin Green (Co-adaptor, Director) is an actor, educator, and Founding member and Co-Artistic Director of Blackberry Productions Theatre Company. For over twenty years, he has created original theatre that reflects untold stories and history of African America.
Shawn René Graham (Co-adaptor, Dramaturg) is a freelance writer and dramaturg from San Jose, California who has worked with many writers including Keith Josef Adkins, Michael Bradford, Kia Corthron, Nilo Cruz, Steve Harper, Eduardo Machado, Walter Mosley, Lynn Nottage, Paul Rudnick, Cori Thomas, and Judy Tate.
