Written in 1901, Three Sisters is considered one of Chekhov's best works. The play follows the lives of the wealthy Prozorov sisters - Olga, Masha and Irina - and their many friends as they spend their days prating about seemingly unimportant everyday happenings. Disillusioned with provincial living, the trio longs to return to the hustle and bustle of metropolitan life in Moscow.

The production also features Christopher Hayes, Victor Holtcamp, Harry Kellerman, T.J. Morton, Katherine Powell, Caroline Sharman, Bryan Tallevi, Paco Toslon and Taylor White.
The technical crew includes set and lighting designs by John Lucas and costume design by Philip Contic. Jasmine Syedullah is the stage manager and technical direction is by William Roche.
