Conceived & Directed by Mimi Barcomi • Written by Mimi Barcomi & Anton Chekhov
HOT! Festival, Dixon Place, July 2016
3SISTERS, Or: If We Could Only Get to Greenwich Village is what would have happened if Anton Chekhov wrote his plays at a gay bar. A humorous theatrical mélange utilizing Chekhov’s play Three Sisters and original writing to explore the familial bonds created by queers, 3SISTERS is a short comedic piece about three sisters/queens: Olga, the 33 year old washed up old slut, Masha, a 23 year old wannabe slut trapped in a stifling marriage, and Irina, jailbait princess. Sexual secrets are uncovered and tempers spark as the sisters explore love, sex, and their yearning to return to Greenwich Village.
