THR3E ZISTERS by Lola Pierson and Yury Urnov

January 22nd- February 14th Thursdays- Saturdays at 8pm.

The three sisters have long been dead and buried. Vershinin, Tusenbach, and Suleny exhume them with the hopes of creating the perfect women for their pleasure. The sisters, unburied and ready to adapt to a new way of life, learn that there are already very stringent expectations in place for their arrivals. 

Three Zisters is an amalgamation of a modern adaption of Chekhov's Three Sisters, a literal translation of the original Russian text, and dramatic criticism of Chekhov's work. The piece explores the innate conflict between performing classic texts and the changing roles of gender and performance in contemporary culture.  Oh, and the sisters are zombies.

Southwest theatre productions presents

Rapture Blister Burn

by Gina Gionfriddo and directed by Fritz ketchum

When celebrity professor Catherine reunites with her best friends from graduate school, now a married couple with children living in a New England college town, she begins to rethink the choices she’s made over the past twenty years.  As these three friends navigate their new relationships with each other, feelings of regret begin to arise. Catherine’s homecoming leads to shifting dynamics and a larger look at how much (or little) the lives of women have evolved over the past century while examining subjects ranging from pornography to Betty Friedan to slasher films.

 January 22-25th & 28-31st. Evenings: Thu – Sat at 8pm; Sun. at 2pm
