The Three Sisters is Chekhov's penultimate play chronologically. After the successful premiere of Uncle Vanya in the fall of 1899, director Nemirovich-Danchenko tried to persuade Chekhov to write a play for the theatre. With this encouragement, Chekhov began writing a drama in August 1900 and finished it in December of the same year. The play was first presented by the Moscow Art Theatre on January 31, 1901, followed by a February 28 opening in St. Petersburg.  The Three Sisters was translated into Italian, German and Czech during the writer's lifetime. Its premiere in Hungary was held on October 15, 1922 at the Vígszínház in Budapest.

Is time passing us by, or is it us who are passing time? We are struggling in the web of the past, present, and future. What leads us into the trap of time? Why is it so difficult to face reality with time and ourselves in our present state?  It is so much easier to live in the beauty, harmony and safety of the past or to look hopefully to the illusion of a better happier future.  This performance is about loneliness and of self struggle and the ruthlessness of the passage of time, but in a lively world full of humour and music from which the endless possibilities of life pulses.
