Three Sisters: A Black Opera In Three Acts
Posted on February 23, 2009 by Tia Lalani
Created by Albertan independent theatre company, Cowgirl Opera
Embodying a surreal prairie landscape, and a prairie Gothic aesthetic The Three Sisters is a dark comedy that subverts the great prairie narrative, uncovering a clown like world that is sinister, gauche and suffocating. This little Chekhovian freakshow on the prairie won best new play in Ottawa (Fringe 2005), best musical in Winnipeg (2005), and best new play in Vancouver (Fringe 2005). It has been published in the Dandelion Press. Paul Matywchuck (SEE Magazine) voted Three Sisters the Show not to miss at the prestigious High Performance Rodeo in 2006, and it was nominated as pick of the Fringe in Edmonton 2005.
Warning: This play has course content, graphic sexuality, and may be considered offensive.
