Three Sisters

About the Production

Irina is quickest to the net, but Olga has a killer serve. And though Masha never cared for tennis, she sure plays a mean backhand up the line! Following their acclaimed 2013 WoW Festival production of Our Town, THE TRIP returns with a new production of Anton Chekhov’s famous drama, Three Sisters, staged at twilight on a tennis court, with the audience seated just beyond the lines. There will be tea from a samovar, lots of original music, and tennis outfits in various shades of flattering and absurd. If the sisters can’t play nicely, maybe you’d like to jump in and play a point or two?

is a San Diego-based contemporary theater company, founded and led by Joshua Kahan Brody and Tom Dugdale, that strives for interdisciplinary, ensemble-driven theater that challenges traditional boundaries of narrative and space. They have worked site-specifically in San Diego in locations ranging from a parking garage (Fool for Love), to a former military barracks (Macbeth), to one of San Diego’s hottest tattoo shops (Three Plays in a Tattoo Shop). THE TRIP’s Orpheus & Eurydice – a new take on the myth through a blend of online content, live performance, and film – was nominated for a 2014 Craig Noel Award in the category of Best New Play. THE TRIP also created a backyard-barbecue staging of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town for the Playhouse’s 2013 WoW Festival. More at
