Play was based on Chekhov's "3 Sisters" and set in present time in a dying town near New Orleans. The characters were soldiers and poor alcohol-addled Southerners. I thought the themes explored were defined, varied and thought provoking. The sisters were just in a "psychological mud of their own making" and unable to change their situation even though each imagined and stated the answer to her dilemmna. The traditional role of the woman and their wanting to define themselves not through men but on their own terms was quite dramatic. The soldiers were damaged by war and a sad lot. The effects of war were certainly dramatized for me. Their selfish need to have someone at home that cared about them when they were away at war was startling. I liked the play quite a bit. I thought the acting was convincing and each character was well defined. Very glad I saw the play. Memorable.
