Gateway artistic director to give chat at Richmond Public Library

Gateway Theatre artistic director Jovanni Sy will be hosting the next fireside chat on Thursday, Jan. 17 from 7-8 p.m. in the Kwok-Chu Lee Living Room at the Brighouse branch of Richmond Public Library at 7700 Minoru Gate.

The evening’s chat will feature the upcoming production of Sisters. The play is set in China, 1939, where two Russian sisters live in a massive house in a garrison town where their deceased father used to train Nationalist Chinese troops. As they struggle to make ends meet and maintain the illusion of their former privileged lives, their Chinese sister in-law takes over the house, one room at a time. Sisters is inspired by Anton Chekhov’s famous play Three Sisters.

“The library is thrilled to offer the public a chance to learn more about theatre in Richmond and the next production at Gateway,” says Lee Anne Smith, Programming Librarian. “This production will be of particular interest to Chinese, Russian and English communities.”

The program is free and drop in but space is limited.
