Chekhov’s play about the loss of privilege and search for meaning gets flipped on its head in this modern retelling. Written by budding Chicago playwright Aaron Sawyer (Red Hamlet), Three Soldiers (for Sisters) is about the difficult climb of today’s warrior class. The powerful work mixes realism and expressionism with robotic limbs, female soldiers, racial tensions and a terrorist attack. Within the updated context, the play provokes thought about whether things really have changed that much over the past 100 years.
