Urges readers to see ‘Three Sisters’

To the Editor:

I highly recommend the play “Three Sisters” being presented by the Hungry Theatre Company. I haven’t seen it, as it opens tomorrow, but their production “The Heart of Dogland” was so good that I have great confidence that this will be also. “The Heart of Dogland” explored the subject of compassion and was an all-new work created by Hungry River. They explored the topic from many perspectives, and sources for the play included world-renowned philosophers, authors and psychologists, as well as the children’s book “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein.

The play was extremely enjoyable and interesting, as well as very thought-provoking. Sets and costumes were minimal but very creative and highlighted the essence of what the actors were portraying.

Afterward, the cast pulled some chairs into a circle and sat among the audience members who wished to participate. Questions were asked and answered, and a discussion was held about the ideas presented in the play, the views of the audience as well as the cast.

I absolutely loved the play and discussion and highly recommend “Three Sisters” as well. I just know it will be great!
