Comedy/ 3 characters, 3 Women / Full Length, 8 scenes
Synopsis: Olga and Massa are sisters from Russia living in Greece. The arrival of sibling Irena ignites their suspicions of one another. Does Massa work at the musical academy or is she a drug dealer? Is Irena really a nun or is she involved with the Russian Mafia and selling guns?
But sisterly solidarity prevails and eventually the trio decide to leave for Moscow together. However, as in a certain other play about three sisters, actually getting there is another matter altogether. Athens-Moscow is a hilarious, inspired reimagining of Chekhov’s great play.
