SAN FRANCISCO — Utopia Theatre Project presents “Three Sisters,” directed by Angie Higgins and adapted by Ella Ruth Francis, from Feb. 14 to March 8 at The Bindery SF, 1727 Haight St., San Francisco.

This immersive adaptation of Chekhov’s “Three Sisters” weaves music, movement, and mythology into this classic tale of family and fate. This new version of the story digs deeper into the hearts of these classic characters.

The talented, diverse cast of 13 Bay Area actors is led by Anne Yumi Kobori as Masha, Ella Ruth Francis as Irina, and Marcia Aguilar as Olga.

Kobori is founding artistic producer of Utopia Theatre Project and resident artist and education program manager for San Francisco Shakespeare Festival. Originally from Berkeley, she studied theatre and women’s studies at Sarah Lawrence College, studied theatre at Santa Clara University, and acted with Woman’s Will Shakespeare Company and Arabian Shakespeare Festival.

Through immersive staging, the audience will be right in the action, drinking and sitting with the cast as they navigate their way through the story.
