Three Sisters Two
About Three Sisters Two
Originally written in Afrikaans, the language of Dutch colonial South Africa, "Three Sisters Two" imagines Chekhov’s characters 20 years later with the Bolsheviks now in power. After the fall of apartheid, the privileged white class of South Africa had to redefine their position in society. De Wet uses post-revolutionary Russia as a stand-in for her own country to ask how colonial powers respond when they stand on the threshold of a new era. Best Production of the Year at the 1999 South African Theater Awards.
