The Cherry Orchard

Fri/Sat/Sun June 30/July 1/ 2 at 1pm.

First produced in 1904 at The Moscow Art Theatre under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky, this production of Anton Chekhov’s classic tale of cultural futility, starring Russian stage and screen legend Renata Litvinova, is more relevant today than it was over a hundred years ago. Adolf Shapiro’s interpretation asks the question, where would the characters of this play live today years after their cherry orchard has been cut down? The answer, which lies in the material world created by set designer, David Borovsky, is, of course, on the stage.

A century later, this production brings The Cherry Orchard full circle, with its wandering band of characters never at peace, but finally back home.

Presented in Russian with English subtitles.
