The Hypocrites explore the absurd, existential comedy of Chekhov''s Prozorov sisters, whose daily lives in a drab provincial town pale in comparison to their imagined futures in the big city. Director Geoff Button follows the gradually building devastation that results from the sisters'' comic missteps.

"I'm particularly drawn to Three Sisters because I think it's about the ways in which we're all culpable for our failed hopes," comments adapter/director Geoff Button. "I don't see three women lazily pining for Moscow, I see them constantly taking action, just in pursuit of all the wrong goals. Life in Three Sisters is determined not by the characters' big picture dreams, but by all the petty decisions and daily frustrations that steer them off course," adds Button.

The production team includes for THREE SISTERS includes William Boles (scenic design), Jeremy Floyd (costume design), William Kirkham (lighting design), Stephen Gawrit (sound design), Danielle Case (props design) and JC Widman (stage manager).
