“Three Sisters: Tulsa, 1921,” a devised re-imagining of Anton Chekhov’s seminal play, is set in the affluent Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa County, Oklahoma, one of the wealthiest black communities in the United States at the time. The play follows Uli, Cora, and Irene before, during, and after the Tulsa Race Riot that engulfed their home and lives in the summer of 1921. “Three Sisters: Tulsa, 1921” focuses on the strength and resilience of those most gravely affected by violence they can do nothing to control: black women. We see the sisters struggle to keep their family and community together, even as it turns to ash around them.
