By Anton Chekhov, Adapted by Tracy Letts
Directed By Jon Kretzu
Running Time - Approximately 2 hrs 45 min with one 20 minute intermission.
This adaptation of the Russian masterpiece was commissioned by Artists Rep as part three of its four-part Chekhov project. Letts gives us a fresh, new look at the decay of the privileged class and the search for meaning in the modern world, through the eyes of three dissatisfied sisters who desperately long for their treasured past. Letts, whose Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning play August: Osage County is currently the toast of Broadway, is considered to be one of the major voices in American theater today.
