Anton Chekhov

Nearest shows:

Three Prozorov sisters - Olga, Masha and Irina and their brother Andrei live in a small and "lifeless" provincial town, where desperation and longing prevail. Even though they came to the backwater town eleven years ago from Moscow, the Prozorov sisters never got used to living there and yearn for urban Moscow. Only the proximity of a nearby military outpost and the company of the officers make their existence tolerable.

Chekhov provides us a glimpse into the turmoil of family life where personal crises and tragedies occur. Moscow represents a magic solution to the sisters’ problems, a symbol of hope, new life and future happiness. However, as the play progresses we witness the fading of their dreams. The anticipated return to Moscow remains an eternal symbol of missed opportunities and shattered dreams.
