        Sisters, The         Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks



Sisters, The

Sisters, The
Using a college on New Yorks Upper east Side as their surrogate home and sanctuary, four siblings struggle to banish the ghost of their dead Father and create some semblance of harmony as adults. Suggested by Chekhovs Three Sisters, this unflinchingly honest Drama with comedy explores and explodes the myths about family and friendship. But in contrast to Chekhovs family, who yearn to leave the staid provinces for the excitement of Moscow, alfieris modern siblings long to escape the chaos of Manhattan for the simpler life they left behind in their childhood home in Charleston. as they strive to reconcile their individual desires, they expose each others deceptions with barbed wit and candor escalating to moments of shocking power. their final realization is that violence and chaos reside within the walls of their sanctuary -- and within the heart.
