The Cherry Orchard

Date: 25 Mar 2020

First produced in 1904 at The Moscow Art Theatre under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky, Anton Chekhov’s classic tale of cultural futility is more relevant today than it was over a hundred years ago.

Created for the Moscow Art Theatre and starring Russian stage and screen legend Renata Litvinova, 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.

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.
