About this item

"Zestier and more colloquial than most translations . . . Letts' main achievement here is to make Chekhov more emotional, accessible and active."—Chicago Tribune

"I've seen over a dozen Three Sisters, but never has the final scene . . . registered so hard. It's the cumulative effect of . . . searing truth-telling—from Letts, who knows family dysfunction as only the author ofAugust: Osage County can, and Chekhov, the good doctor who diagnoses all our weaknesses that are so strong."—Chicago Theater Beat

When the champion of modern family drama takes on the genre's patriarch, the result is an energetic and vitalizing adaptation of one of Anton Chekhov's most beloved plays. A cruder, gruffer outline of the plight of the wistful Prozorov sisters serves to emphasize the anguish of their Chekhovian stagnation. This latest work from Letts envisions the revered classic through a fresh lens that revives the passionate characters and redoubles the tragic effect of their stunted dreams.

Tracy Letts was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play forAugust: Osage County. His other plays include Superior Donars; Pulitzer Prize-finalistMan from Nebraska; Killer Joe, which was adapted into a critically acclaimed film; andBug, which has played in New York, Chicago and London and was adapted into a film. Letts garnered a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway revival ofWho's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
