Abstract:

The works of Russias greatest playwright, Anton Chekhov, masterfully blend comedy and pathos, creating a richness of texture and characterization rarely seen since Shakespeare. With Three Sisters (1901), his portrait of the Prozorov familys elusive dream of returning from the provinces to an idealized Moscow, he captured a restlessness and yearning which remain enduringly modern. In Paul Schmidts version the basis for the Wooster Groups acclaimed adaptation Brace Up! we can perceive, for the first time in English, a refreshingly clear and colloquial style we instinctively know as Chekhovs own.
