Casting is complete for The Acting Company's reading of Mustapha Matura's new play Three Sisters After Chekhov. Part of the 2023 Louanna O. Carlin & John MacDonald Reading Series, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the company, the reading will be held May 22 at 7 PM at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre.
Directed by Seret Scott, the cast will feature Tatiana Wechsler (Mr. Saturday Night), Kaliswa Brewster (Time After Time, Billions), Joyce Sylvester (Most Dangerous Man in America, A Freeman Hope), Jasai Chase Owens (The Expanse, Uncoupled), Jakeem Dante Powell (Rustin, The American Wife), Daniel Davila (Cheer Up Charlie), Alexandria Elam (Triflin'), Jason Bowen (The Play That Goes Wrong), Andy Lucien (Sandblasted), and Cici Koueth (YoungArts National Theatre Finalist, 2018).
In the adaptation of the Chekhov classic, Matura examines the question of cultural identity and the way people transform themselves–willingly or unconsciously–in order to survive. The play is set in 1941 Colonial Trinidad as three sisters endure a mundane but privileged life in the capital, Port of Spain.
The Acting Company is led by Artistic Director Kent Gash, Managing Director Erik Schroeder, and Producing Director Devin Brain.
