A full-cast performance of Chekhov’s masterpiece starring Jennifer Westfeldt, Tessa Thompson, 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, Three Sisters beautifully mixes humor and heartbreak and is a perennial favorite of actors and audiences alike.

The great Russian playwright Anton Chekhov is one of the most influential figures in modern literature, whose classic works include Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard (also available as an LA Theatre Works production).

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Jennifer Westfeldt as Masha; Tessa Thompson as Irina; Sarah Zimmerman as Olga; Jon Hamm as Vershinin; Josh Clark as Solyony and 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 and Ferapont; and Reid Scott as Andrei. Translated by Christopher Hampton. Directed by Jenny Sullivan. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.

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.
