A performance of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters will be taking place at the AUC New Campus from 2 December till 9 December at 5pm except for 7 December.
The play is directed by Frank Bradley, a professor at the theatre program at the AUC, and performed by AUC students, theater and non-theater majors. It is presented as realistic as possible in a naturalistic world. The stage will have three sets that get smaller by each act representing loss and the passing of time, the same way sand slips slowly through someone’s hands.
Chekhov wrote Three Sisters in 1900 under difficult circumstances and a failing health condition. It was performed for the first time in 31 January 1901. The play revolves around three cultured sisters who live in a small provincial village dreaming of their former life in Moscow.
