Like many of Chekhov's works, "Three Sisters" explores the decay of the privileged class in Russia and the search for meaning in the modern world. Set in the late 1890s, the drama is a beautiful play of character, relationship and motivation, exploring the gap between hope and fulfillment in the lives of the Prozorov family and their friends.
