Chekov's Three Sisters

Posted by CAiello

The SUNY Orange Apprentice Players will present Anton Chekhov’s celebrated “Three Sisters” in a translation by Paul Schmidt on stage at the William and Helen Richards Theatre at Orange Hall on the Middletown campus of SUNY Orange during the weekends of April 12-14 and 19-20. Generally acknowledged as being in the first rank of modern playwrights, Chekhov presented a new sort of drama in “Three Sisters” that found significance in the everyday lives of common people. It had a seminal influence on 20th Century playwrighting at a time when world drama was dominated by formulaic comedies and dramas. His close association with the Moscow Art Theatre and Konstantin Stanislavski was the foundation of his enduring reputation.
