Three Sisters
By Anton Chekhov
Translated by Libby Appel
Directed by Blake Thompson


Welcome back to live theatre! This rendition of Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov is translated by Libby Appel, and slightly abridged to fit an intimate cast of UCSB BFA program actors. The goal of this staged reading is to serve as a project for young actors and artists to improve their crafts after a year-long hiatus. We have found that Chekhov beautifully captures the beauty within the suffering of human existence, and after a year of sorrow for everyone, we think there is no better time to tell this story. This will be the first time back onstage since March of 2020 for all of these performers, and we hope you get as much joy out of this experience as we have.

Featuring: Megan Brown, Sheila Correa, Ryan Hollon, Ethan Kim, Matte Kranz, Sara Neal, & Angel Villalobos
Lighting Design by Sophie Lynd
