The final play of one of the world's greatest playwrights.  The Cherry Orchard is a 'classic' in every sense, writes Director Bob Ryder.

"We're 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."


located south of the Community Centre, opposite entrance to Southwick Square.  Car park situated near by.  BN42 4TE puts you in the area!
