The award-winning ensembles of Singapore's Nine Years Theatre and the SITI Company of NYC join hands to present this multi-lingual retelling of Anton Chekhov's classic play Three Sisters.

Three Sisters, by Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, stands as one of the most outstanding plays of his career. Olga, Masha, and Irina – the titular sisters – fritter their lives away in a provincial town, while they dream of returning to the cosmopolitan city where they grew up.

Chronicling their tangled relationships, ordinary frustrations and search for meaning, Three Sisters opens a moving window into the human condition, and reveals Chekhov's profound understanding of universal themes.

In this new rendering of this classic play, Singapore Mandarin theatre company Nine Years Theatre (NYT) joins hands with the SITI Company of New York City – backed by a talented multi- lingual cast. Co-directed by NYT's Nelson Chia and SITI's Barney O'Hanlon, these two award- winning theatre ensembles investigate an utterly human story of survival in a changing world.

Don't miss this timeless play that reveals the absurdity, courage, and tenderness of the human condition – now seen through the eyes of contrasting cultures, languages, and the actors' powerful physicality.



《三姐妹》是俄罗斯剧作家契柯夫最杰出的剧作之一,故事围绕住在一个小省城里的三姐妹 -- 奥尔加、玛莎和伊琳娜。她们各有憧憬却没有实际行动,只能盼望着能重返承载了童年美好回忆的莫斯科,最终在空想中虚度了生命。
