The drama of the American writer Wendy Wasserstein is an important material for literary studies. Of particular interest for the study is the intertextual aspect of her work. The article analyzes the interpretation of Chekhov`s motives (on the example of the drama “Three Sisters”) in Wasserstein's drama on the example of the play “Sisters Rosensweig” (1992). It is determined that the concept of intertextuality in literary studies means the interaction of any text with each other, the superposition of the text on another. The main aspects of intertextuality that are relevant for the analysis of W. Wasserstein's drama are analyzed and highlighted. Chekhov's motives are described in the drama “SistersRosenzweig” and the commonalities and differences between Chekhov's play “Three Sisters” and Wasserstein are highlighted. The ideological-aesthetic and genre transformations of Chekhov's artistic models proposed by an American woman playwright are analyzed. The use of the classification of intertexts relevant for the analysis of plays by W. Wasserstein, according to M. Trostnikov is substantiated
