Story


Four siblings struggle to banish the ghost of their dead father and create some semblance of harmony using a college on New York's Upper East Side as their surrogate home. Flashing between the chaos of Manhattan and the seemingly perfect sanctuary of Charleston, this unflinchingly honest drama with comedy explores and explodes the myths of family and friendship. As three sisters and a brother recall the simpler life the family left in their childhood home, they peel back the layers of their pretensions and self-deceptions with wit and candor escalating to moments of shocking power. Their final realization is that chaos and violence lie within the heart, and the only defenses are love and honesty.

by Dan Callahan [Slant Magazine]
“..a turgid updating of Chekhov's The Three Sisters, which can't wriggle free from its stifling stage roots..”
by Scott Tobias [The Onion A.V. Club]
“..Highly recommended..”
