Chekhov's masterpiece in a full-cast performance starring Tessa Thompson, Jennifer Westfeldt, Sarah Zimmerman and Jon Hamm. Meet Olga, Masha, and Irina, warm and cultured young sisters who were reared in the exciting hubbub of Moscow, but have been living in the dull, gossipy backwaters of Russia for far too long. With their father's passing, and the ordinary grip of day-to-day life slowly suffocating them, the urge to return to the city with its rich and exciting life rises to a fever pitch.

First performed in 1901, The Three Sisters mixes humor and heartbreak beautifully and is a perennial favorite of actors and audiences alike. This is a full-cast performance starring Tessa Thompson as Irina; Jennifer Westfeldt as Masha; Sarah Zimmerman as Olga; Jon Hamm as Vershinin; Josh Clark as Solyony/Rode; Josh Cooke as Kulygin; Dan Donohue as Tuzenbach; Pamela Dunlap as Anfisa; Marc Halsey as Fedotik; Rebecca Mozo as Natasha; Robert Pine as Chebutykin/Ferapont; Reid Scott as Andrei. Directed by Jenny Sullivan. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, in April, 2011.

    " This adaptation of ORLANDO is really fantastic. This is a strong contender for fall. "

    " Not one of my favorites. There was a big language barrier for me especially with the names. It was very hard to keep track of who was who when reading. I found this play vastly more comedic than I've heard most people do but in general I didn't think the plot was particularly interesting. "

    " I think I like this one the best of the Chekhov plays I've read. The sisters were each unique, along with other characters who were dynamic. Overall, it's an interesting plot that devolves as time goes on, in a good way I suppose. I'd like to see this live. "

    " This play speaks to me. The characters, especially Andrey and Irina, articulate many of my anxieties and unanswered questions. "

    " had to read this one for my clown class (no, it's not as strange as it seems). The idea was to try and perform scenes from the 3 sisters as a clown.
    But I'm a big fan of tchekhov anyway. Amazing what he can do with what is not said.
    I certinly will need to re-read it. "

    " From our book club discussion, where everyone had a different translation, I'd say that this edition is the one to read. "

About the Author
Author Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov (1860–1904), the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays, is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. He described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, thereby becoming the prominent representative of the late nineteenth-century Russian realist school. His early stream-of-consciousness style strongly influenced the literary world, including writers such as James Joyce.
