Salvage Vanguard Theater (SVT) announces the world premiere of THR3E ZISTERS by Baltimore-based playwright Lola Pierson, conceived of and directed by Yury Urnov of Russia. Three Zisters is an amalgamation of a modern adaption of Chekhov's Three Sisters, a literal translation of the original Russian text, and dramatic criticism of Chekhov's work. The piece explores the innate conflict between performing classic texts and the changing roles of gender and performance in contemporary culture. Oh, and the sisters are zombies. The synopsis: The three sisters have long been dead and buried. Vershinin, Tusenbach, and Suleny exhume them with the hopes of creating the perfect women for their pleasure. The sisters, unburied and ready to adapt to a new way of life, learn that there are already very stringent expectations in place for their arrivals. THR3E ZISTER’s Austin-based cast includes Heather Hanna, Jenny Larson, and Caroline Reck as the zombie sisters, and Jay Byrd, Zac Crofford, Robert Matney, and Noel Gaulin. The award-winning design team includes Ia Enstera , Natalie George, Jessica Gilzow, and Robert Fisher. More information about THR3E ZISTERS can be found at www.salvagevanguard.org.
