This reimagining of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters follows the Patrushev sisters through a summer of upheaval. Having emigrated from Moscow, Russia to Moscow, Idaho as children, the grown sisters are now stagnating after the death of their father. Their lives are not quite what they had imagined they would be: Olena, the eldest, is holding the family together by a thread; Marina is married to a man she thinks is a fool; and the youngest, Inessa, won’t look for a job. New housemates and house guests arrive to throw their lives into a very different rhythm. This play examines both the comedic and tragic aspects of what it means to never be quite satisfied.
