Chekhov’s Three Sisters is a comedy of what could be.

The characters live – just like us – in a destabilized world, a world in collapse from all points of view, a world thirsty for a new order. A silent war goes on around us and imperceptibly becomes more and more present. Private space that we, once, dominated so superior, is now gradually conquered, abused, raped. What can we do? What should we do? How should we live in this new world?

We follow Chekhov’s characters struggle, but they continue to point at us. The time slips through their fingers, burying them in unanswered questions. Why their love is not enough? They are trapped in different individual realities without even coincide memories – what should they remember and how?

The play is a terrifying and brutal poem that talks about how to be simpler, more authentic, more ourselves.

(Alexandar Ivanovski, director)

If everything is in vain, because nothing inspires them to achieve the ideal, every single day in the lives of these characters seem to turn off. Their life is always elsewhere. Finally, forced by circumstances to accept that their place is where it is already, they will find refuge in work and the simple joys of family life.
