It's fitting that playwright Libby Appel directed Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike at PlayMakers Rep in 2014. The experienced theater artist is an authority on the works of Anton Chekhov, and her recently published translations of his five major plays featured strategic restorations of passages and entire scenes that had been excised by Russia's government censors and Chekhov's original director, the legendary Konstantin Stanislavski. But Appel's love affair with Three Sisters dates back to her teen years. "I developed a reputation for being the three sisters—all of them at one time," she wrote in a foreword to her 2013 adaptations, which smooth out the chill and stiltedness that have long dominated Chekhov's identity in Europe and America. PlayMakers' new artistic director, Vivienne Benesch, directs this new view of the Russian master, in a production featuring David Adamson, Julie Fishell, Ray Dooley and Arielle Yoder.

7:30 p.m. Tues.–Sat.; 2 p.m. Sun. (and Jan. 30), $15–$54, 150 Country Club Road, Chapel Hill, 919-962-7529, —Byron Woods
