FGCU's Theatre Lab Opens Season with "Three Sisters"
10/24/2011

FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University's Theatre Lab invites the public to the opening of "Three Sisters," written by Anton Chekov, adapted by Libby Appel and directed by Barry Cavin, Nov. 9 through Nov. 13, and Nov. 16 through Nov. 20 at the FGCU Arts Complex on campus.

Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m., and a matinee performance on Sunday at 2 p.m.

This bittersweet comic drama treats the audience to the inner lives of the Prozorov family and reveals the wasted opportunities and missed personal bliss that drives them to desire the unreachable hope of returning to the city of their lost dreams. Libby Appel, Artistic Director Emerita of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival writes a brilliantly adapted translation that artfully remains faithful to the original while being powerfully relevant to contemporary life.

Tickets go on sale Nov. 2. Cost for tickets is $7 and can be purchased online at: http://theatrelab.fgcu.edu.

For more information contact Barry Cavin, professor and director of FGCU Theatre Lab at bcavin@fgcu.edu.
