Chekhov's classic play about the loss of privilege and the search for meaning gets a thoughtful re-examination through a modern lens. Under the skilled direction of Onomatopoeia Theatre's own Thomas R. Gordon (The Tempest
), this adaptation of The Three Sisters
takes place in a small Virginia town. Each of the three sisters (Olga, Irina and Masha) struggles with longing for their former home of New York while throwing themselves into their work, affairs with soldiers from the nearby military base or the local party scene. Chekhov has woven an intricate story that exposes the universal truth of our lives -- how meaning and purpose rarely reveal themselves and must be actively pursued, often to tragic results. Within the modern context that Gordon has spun into the classic story, The Three Sisters
provokes thought about whether things really have changed that much over the past 100 years.
