The Prozorov sisters pine for Moscow. Culture and life brim in the city center, while they live among the mundane of a crumbling army garrison after their father's death. Though living with their brother Andrey, nothing keeps them back but their own misfortune, decisions, and the inertia of negativity that continues to follow this family.

Praise For…

"To his great credit, Letts hasn't tried to make his script stand out but rather to erase the misplaced reverence of most Chekhov translations. The effect reveals the colors and original intent beneath, including Chekhov's underappreciated humor." - The Oregonian

"I’ve seen over a dozen Three Sisters, but never has the final scene of the sisters’ solidarity after all the blows we see them suffer registered so hard. It’s the cumulative effect of 150 minutes of searing truth-telling—from Letts, who knows family dysfunction as only the author of August: Osage County can." - Chicago Theater Beat

"Letts’ revision...should make believers even out of those playgoers who avoid Chekhov." - Stage and Cinema

"Highly recommended...Fascinating revival...has a speed and light, a sharpness and edgy heart that make it newly compelling" – Chicago Sun-Times
