About the Play:

A new translation of Anton Chekhov's masterpiece, The Cherry Orchard illustrates the passing on of responsibilities for control and management from incompetent, wasteful aristocracy to more capable hands.

Ranevskaya can no longer afford to keep her childhood home with its beautiful but barren cherry orchard. She rejects the compromise offered by Lopakhin, a local businessman, to cut down the orchard and sell the land for holiday homes. Eventually Ranevskaya and her family are forced to leave the estate which Lopakhin has now bought.

The Cherry Orchard premiered at the Moscow Art Theatre on January 17, 1904 — Chekhov's 44th birthday and only six months before his death. Despite his modern reputation for melodrama, Chekhov insisted at the time that the play should be treated as 'a light comedy'. This translation by Stephen Mulrine was first staged by English Touring Theatre in 2000.

Cast: 5 women, 7 men, plus extras.

About the Playwright:

Anton Chekhov was the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays and is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama.

Stephen Mulrine is a Glasgow-born poet and playwright who has written extensively for radio and television, and published many translations.
