The Cherry Orchard

The Cherry Orchard

Synopsis

DIRECTED BY MICHAEL BOYD, FORMER ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF THE ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY, CHEKHOV’S FINAL MASTERPIECE IS FULL OF WILD HUMOUR AND PIERCING SADNESS IN THIS VIVID NEW PRODUCTION OF THE CHERRY ORCHARD.
The tide of change is coming. Madam Ranyevskaya's world of privilege and pleasure is beginning to show cracks, but she and her family live on in denial.  
 
Lopakhin wants to rescue Ranyevskaya. The hard-working son of one of her family’s serfs, his new-found wealth can offer shelter and security to the woman he has loved since boyhood, but it will come at a high price.
 
Kirsty Bushell (King Lear, Chichester Festival Theatre; Antigone, Barbican) and Jude Owusu (A Tale of Two Cities, Regent’s Park; Julius Caesar, RSC) lead the ensemble in this fresh, funny and honest translation by award-winning playwright Rory Mullarkey, (Cannibals Royal Exchange Theatre, Saint George and the Dragon, National Theatre).
