Staged reading of Villa Dolorosa (Three Botched Birthdays) by Rebekka Kricheldorf
A staged reading of Villa Dolorosa (Three Botched Birthdays) by Rebekka Kricheldorf translated from German by Princeton Translator-in-Residence Neil Blackadder. Villa Dolorosa is a free adaptation of Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Where Chekhov, in a tragicomic mode, depicted the plight of three sisters at the turn of the twentieth century with limited capacity to give their own lives meaning, Kricheldorf writes a comedy about three early-twenty-first-century sisters who could easily make different choices - but fail to.
