As in many others of his plays, here too, Chekhof describes the microcosm of the indolent provincial life, decentralized and abandoned by the State, as well as the devastating results of the depressing conditions in the hearts of people. All the characters of the play proceed inevitably towards their mental wear. The close and without exit monotony of provincial life and the difficult economic conditions do not leave any room for changes. Everyone suffocates by the lack of purpose, seeking a meaning and hanging on accidental solutions, gets disappointed, gives up and endures with melancholy a schematic life, undeserved for their intellect and sensibility. Moscow, birthplace of the three sisters, is the town where they dream to return, symbolizing the escape and salvation that the memories have idealized. In 'Three sisters' we discern all the elements of the incomparable technique of the Great Russian Writer: daily, commonplace subjects, and a rudimentary plot, though filled with dreams, nostalgy, hope, enthusiasm, denial, humor, melancholy, meditation and abandonment. The dramatic closing up is not shaped trough action but through thoughts hiding behind words, dramatic silences, and comic hints. All these elements give the atmosphere tension and show clearly the singular poetic characters of Chekhof's play.
