The final play of one of the world's greatest playwrights. The
Cherry Orchard is a 'classic' in every sense, writes Director
in Russia, back in 1900. On a run-down country estate the old world of
the privileged landowners is starting to crumble. It's a world that
will soon be tumbling into violent revolution.
At the centre pf this fragile place stands the beloved cherry orchard
itself. We may never see it, but its presence is always felt.
Finally we may even hear it falling to the first blows of the axe.
This is a ground-breaking play, astonishingly fresh and modern, and
rightly considered one of the finest works of all drama.
It is the strangest of comedies. We meet more than a dozen
wonderful characters, most of then troubled or eccentric. But out of
their tears and emotions, comes some of the funniest and most touching
observation of human life you are likely to see."
