The Cherry Orchard

RUNNING TIME
3hr. (1 intermission)

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Dusty sheets, flickering reel-to-reels, and empty suitcases conjure the last days of Lyubov Ranevskaya's beloved estate, set to be auctioned, along with her famed cherry orchard, unless former serf Lopakhin can find a way to rouse her family from the shuttered half-light of former glory and into a new day. With its motley cast of faded nobles and hangers-on, Chekhov's tragicomedy captures the nuances of a new social order, in which the static nobility gives way to the harsh realities of social mobility, political unrest, and constant, grinding expansion.
