Description

Full Length Play

Comedy

Farce

From Eastern Europe's leading contemporary playwright, the author of Hunting Cockroaches, here is a bold tragicomic farce - an unflinchingly funny and daring epic with a sly wink toward Chekhov. Three sisters in modern Moscow hunger for love and happiness amidst the uncertainty of a new world order. When an American filmmaker comes to town, they seize the chance to change their fates and maybe get to Hollywood ... or is it Brighton Beach?

"Irresistible go for broke absurdity [with] ... sustained satire [that] recalls the dizzy excesses of Gogol.- The New York Times

"Audacious, a black comedy set in money grubbing modern Moscow.... The play feels Brechtian [with] more humor."- The New Yorker

"Powerfully impressive.... Has the tensile strength of the original Chekhovian weave."- Village Voice
