Theatre Projects Manitoba has been playing on the plains since 1990. Committed to the cultivation of Manitoba plays and artists – in the past 21 years, TPM has staged more than 50 new Manitoba works. They have developed the voices of our region, choosing stories that have a connection to our community, our history and culture, and grow these new creations with passionate support. In 2011, TPM kicked off the season with a NEW adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters.
110 years after its Moscow premiere, Bruce McManus weaves a prairie story from the threads of the original and remains faithful to the tragic comedy of Chekhov’s characters in an environment often hostile to dreams. He gives us a play about the Canadian prairie experience at a time when the nation and our place in the world were on the brink of great change.
Three Sisters features Ardith Boxall, Andrew Cecon, Carolyn Gray, Patricia Hunter, Krista Jackson, Tom Keenan, Omar Khan, Erin McGrath, Rob McLaughlin, Harry Nelken, and Gordon Tannereg.
