Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov

This contemporary adaptation of Chekhov’s masterful classic examines the tragic beauty of provincial life — full of love, loss and the cracks in between. After the death of their father, spinster schoolteacher Olga, unhappily married Masha and idealistic Irina suffocate in a provincial Russian town, longing for the sparkling city of their childhood. Financial woes, drunken soldiers and a domineering sister-in-law force the household to confront the rift between personal desires and harsh, everyday realities. The play will take place from November 15th and 16th at 7:30 p.m. in the Edwards Theatre at Coastal Carolina University. Tickets are $7.
