Premiering in 1901, Chekhov’s play captured a time when old structures of society were crumbling, and radical change was in the wind. As they face an uncertain future, the three Prozerov sisters feel trapped in the flux with no way out. Over a century later, young people can certainly relate to the frustration of lives “on hold.” By working with the techniques pioneered by Russian director Konstantin Stanislavsky to better serve Chekhov’s plays, our students will explore the complexity of an inconsistent world that includes passion and pettiness, hope and despair, comedy and tragedy. We call it realism.
