Ashland University Department of Theatre travels abroad to Russia in the year of 1901 for its next mainstage production in the 2018-2019 season of “Treasured Classics Renewed.” Directed by Dr. Teresa Durbin-Ames, Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters, adapted by the contemporary playwright Sarah Ruhl, will play for two weekends on Feb. 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m., and Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. in Hugo Young Theatre.

Chicago’s native and award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl brings new life to one of the world’s greatest plays and the masterpiece by Chekhov.

Transported by their father’s military career from their beloved Moscow to a small rural town, the three sisters (Olga, Masha and Irina) dream of the big city, where they imagine their dreary lives will become fulfilled.
