We regret to announce that the highly anticipated production of Three Sisters—directed by Sam Gold, in a new adaptation by Clare Barron, starring Oscar Isaac and Greta Gerwig—has been indefinitely postponed.   

Originally announced as part of the 2019/20 season, the production was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the intervening three years, we’ve worked to reunite the original company for a summer 2023 production. Unfortunately, new scheduling conflicts have arisen for the production’s in-demand artists, which proved to be insurmountable in bringing the production to life during the 2022/23 season. We hope that we’ll be able to bring this new production to the stage in a future season, and we join our community in the disappointment of this second postponement. 

The act of producing theatre takes tremendous labor and support from visionary artists, dedicated staff and enthusiastic supporters. Because the timeline takes many months—sometimes years—to bring these productions to the stage, there will not be a replacement production in the 2022/23 season, which will be shortened to four productions. How to Defend Yourself is currently playing through April 2 and The Half-God of Rainfall will close out the season in spring/summer 2023. 

Members with questions about their benefits should contact Brennie Tellu (she/her), Audience Services Manager.

Repeat Defenders and 4SBA members with questions should contact Leah Cox (she/her), Associate Director of Development.
