Chekhov's Three Sisters Summary

Chekhov's Three Sisters: A Study Guide by Michael Pennington

Plays are different. Unlike fiction and poetry, their natural habitat is not the printed page. They only release their true meaning on stage. Yet most people find it difficult, when reading a play, to grasp how much the staging can alter and enhance one's understanding. The purpose of this new series, "Page to Stage", is to bring this theatrical perspective into the picture - and apply it to some of the best-known, most-studied classic plays. Moreover, the authors are experienced and established theatre practitioners giving them an unrivalled insight and authority. So, after a concise introduction to the historical background of Chekhov's play, the reader is conducted scene by scene through the Action of the play, followed by a discussion of the Characters, the Setting, Staging, Lighting, Costumes Props and Furniture - everything that adds meaning to the staged event.
