Premiere of Chekhov’s Three Sisters at Dramatyczny Theater
March 7, 2014
The Three Sisters, a play by one of the greatest Russian 19th century playwrights, Anton Chekhov, will premiere March 9 on the Gustaw Holoubek stage of the Dramatyczny Theater in Warsaw.
A year after the death of their father, an army officer, the Moscow-bred sisters Prosorov--Olga, Masha and Irina--are finding life lonely and purposeless in a Russian provincial town. Only the proximity of a nearby artillery post and the company of its officers make their existence bearable.
The three sisters dream of great love, fine spiritual life and meaningful work. They want to be independent, discover the world, be among people they would have something to talk about with. They do not want to give in to a monotonous life. Life, they hope, can be an adventure, not just quiet existence.
The play is directed by Małgorzata Bogajewska, who said:
“The Three Sisters” is for me an exceptionally sharp and dynamic text, Chekhov does not show a daily routine but moments of interpersonal tensions and outbursts. This world, however, lacks powerful man who could contribute real values. Instead, they are helpless, fussy and bitter”.
The play has been translated by Natalia Gałczyńska. The stage has been designed by Maciej Chojnacki.
The cast includes: Maciej Wyczański, Paula Kinaszewska, Anna Gajewska, Agnieszka Warchulska, Anna Szymańczyk, Andrzej Blumenfeld, Adam Ferency, Robert T. Majewski, Marcin Sztabiński, Janusz R. Nowicki, Sebastian Stankiewicz, Mateusz Weber, Władysław Kowalski and Izabela D±browska.
