Anton Chekhov’s final masterpiece, a poignant comedy about a family facing ruin, is a vibrant snapshot of life before the sweeping changes that came to a head with the Russian Revolution.
Populated by colourful, vivid and unforgettable characters this much loved play comes to new life in a daringly fresh production that anticipates the regime change to come.
Since the death of a child, the old house, set amidst its beautiful cherry orchard, has been abandoned for years by most of the family.
Now the family, their staff and hangers-on are back to decide what to do with the property and the remains of their rapidly depleting fortune. Three generations of masters and servants must assess their best chance of survival and the future of the cherry orchard, in a changing world where nothing can be taken for granted.
