Three sisters. Possibly witches. One drawing room. Dark songs. Flashes on an infinite number of life events, both monumental and insignificant. sSISTERSs is a new full-length play with live music and three-part vocal harmony. In rapid-fire stream of consciousness text, the three sisters take on countless famous triads, including Chekhov’s Masha, Irina and Olga; the three main Native American crops (squash, maize and beans); the Catholic Holy Trinity and the First, Second and Third Waves of American feminism. Through warped children’s games, songs and secret girlhood rituals, the sisters explore memory, family, mortality, the repression of female sexuality and the historical and stereotypical roles of privileged women in America.
