Chekhov - Playscript Analysis

3 Sisters, from Act 3

3 Sisters, Scene 2

See monologues in Index!

Stage directions in our script are different from the original (to reflect the flexable audience sitting and the five major acting areas).

There are four characters absent in UAF version, mostly because we needed to shorten the time of the show.

Production is not a period piece and the changes in refences to characters' name reflect it. "Created World" concept.

See Theatre UAF for more information.

Transparent House of Prozorovs: no walls, simultanious action.

See Chekhov Pages! ... and 3 Sisters Archives!

Do I want to direct another (big) Chekhov?

I don't know... [ see "Notes" pages in other subdirectories ]

Four Jokes + One Funeral mini-chekhov05 (UAF main stage)

Read "Chekhov Pages" in

Chekhov: Farces & Love Letters -- Fall 2004 Fall 2005 -- another Chekhov. Silly and cynical. A doctor, who wrote for money. At least he said it... The monsters, the clowns, human caricatures -- they became Soviets, the rule history ever since.

He thought that he is one of them.

So did I.

Gorky took it to the tragic mode, but could a goat could be tragic? (N)

Chekhov was born a century before his own.

I wish he would write what he thought of you, reader.

I want to write about you, my "visitor"...

I will.
