Publisher's Summary

Olga, Masha, and Irina lead a drab life in a provincial garrison town. Their love lives and marriages leave a lot to be desired, and they dream of eventually escaping to Moscow. Some critics called this the best drama of the 20th century.

Hard work

I found this exceptionally difficult to get into. It IS the complete script of the play, complete with stage directions(!) but this does not make for an easy listening experience.
If the script is to be read then it would be far preferable to have it completely cast so that the voices and characterisations become clear. Flo Gibson's attempts at clarification between the different cast members is frankly embarassing.

Unless you are using this for the purposes of learning lines (and remember that you will need to be learning THIS translation) then I think this is almost worthless.

A very disappointing purchase.
