Employing PETE’s unique actor training and collaborative process, the company will work with Simek to create an English translation that excavates the play from under more than a century of romantic English translations. Informed by the actors’ work in the studio, The Three Sisters will reify the action of the original play as performance event, rather than reproduce a work of literature. Simek’s vast experience as a translator, most notably of the works of Vaclav Havel, paired with PETE’s unique actor training and collaborative process will result in an utterly contemporary text and alive performance.
Featuring: Cristi Miles, Amber Whitehall, Rebecca Lingafelter, Jacob Coleman, Mike O'Connell, John San Nicolas, Isaac Lamb, Chris Murray, and Jahnavi Caldwell-Green.
