Apollinaire Extends Letts' THREE SISTERS

Apollinaire Extends Letts' THREE SISTERS

Apollinaire presents Chekhov's masterwork in an intimate production staged in three locations in the theater. Seating is limited to 30 per performance.

Chekhov's dark human comedy of longing for a better life is presented in an adaption by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts. Stuck in a provincial outpost after the death of their army general father, the Prozorov sisters dream of returning to the cosmopolitan Moscow of their childhood. Desire battles reality as they struggle to find their place in a society on the brink of upheaval. Three Sisters is a story of yearning and denial, and finding love, beauty, and meaning even in the darkest hour.

Fri. & Sat. at 8:00
