The Guild Hall presents Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, adapted by Emily Mann. Josh Gladstone directs.
Don't miss this very fast paced funny boulevard comedy filled with desperate people longing for love and connection, yet incapable of getting beyond their own neuroses. The parallels of a society on the brink of enormous change - an agrarian culture where the orchards are cut down to make way for summer cottages, and where the traditional values of class and culture are challenged by the emergent new order - resonate profoundly with the East End Community.
Set in Russia at the turn of the century, The Cherry Orchard is a story chronicling a noblewoman's return to her family estate after a five year absence. There she finds the family fortune has dwindled to practically nothing, and she and her brother are faced with the difficult choice of selling the family's cherry orchard, or losing everything.
Appropriate for ages 10 and above.
