Can anyone persuade Ranevskaya and her aristocratic household that the world is changing, and they must too?
Following internationally acclaimed productions of The Seagull (Belvoir St Theater, Sydney) and Three Sisters (Young Vic, London), director Benedict Andrews has a reputation as one of the world’s leading interpreters of Chekhov. 
For the Donmar Warehouse he stages the great writer’s final play. It’s a work that predicted and captured the end of an era, but is timeless in its humanity, prescience, humour and pathos. The Cherry Orchard is Chekhov’s masterpiece.
Making her London debut at Ranevskaya is Nina Hoss, one of Germany’s most celebrated stage and screen actors, best known to UK audiences for her roles in Homeland and Tár. The cast also includes two-time BAFTA award winner Adeel Akhtar (Sherwood, Murdered by My Father) returning to the London stage for the first time since 2015.
“A production that gets to the drama’s heart and made me realise, all over again, why I love Chekhov.” The Guardian on Three Sisters
