Seth Marcus Theatre 120 Christopher Morrison Section 312 The dog said to the flee, don’t jump on me The University of Wisconsin was recently host to one of Anton Chekhov’s well known plays, “Three Sisters.” It is a play about the decay of the privileged class in Russia and their search for meaning in the modern world. “Three Sisters” follows the changing life of the Prozorov family, including the three sisters (Olga, Masha, and Irina) and their brother Andrei. Conflicts, emotions, and relationships are a very big part of Chekhov’s writing, and the spatial relationships and blocking is very important to help create these desired emotions. There are six main elements of spatial relationships: areas, levels, distance, rhythm and line, change, and relationship to audience. In Anton Chekhov’s “Three Sisters,” James Bohnen uses these elements to try and help enhance the realism of the performance; however, much of the staging seemed forced and unnatural pulling away from the trueness I feel Bohnen was looking for.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
