About Four Sisters

Sarah, a former madam, is 279 years old. She has defied Death, survived the toppling of regimes and centuries of war. When a mysterious plague breaks out, she is forced to relocate to a quarantined zone with her four young wards – girls who have been orphaned by the women she once employed. When a strange doctor arrives and discovers the girls are plague-positive, Sarah must choose between treating the girls with an experimental, new drug or no treatment at all.

"Four Sisters" culminates Susanna Fournier’s critically-acclaimed trilogy, "The Empire," and also stands on its own as a single riveting play. Chronicling 500 years of the rise and fall of an empire, these works crash into today’s world, disrupting ideas of theatrical realism, history, and civilization.

"Four Sisters" shifts between narrative and movement, darkness and light, through the synthesis of Fournier’s provocative text and direction and Amanda Acorn’s choreography. Join a stellar ensemble of women, including Beatriz Pizano, Claudia Moore, Ximena Huizi, and Krystina Bojanowski, as they hurtle you into a fractured world, where grief and injustice provoke a cry for revolution.

Fournier has tortured history…she’s compressed wars of conquest, religious wars, colonial wars and wars on terror into a single fictional war that alludes to them all.
