The Cherry Orchard, by Anton Chekhov, adaptation by Robert Brustein
Chekhov’s final play is a comic masterpiece disguised as a melancholic study of humanity. As Ranevskaya struggles to deal with the realities of losing her family estate, her daughters Anya and Varya choose their own ways to deal with the big changes ahead of them. Meanwhile their neighbor, Lopakhin, tries to solve everyone’s problems with new money and new ideas. Boasting an ensemble cast of deliciously funny roles, The Cherry Orchard remains one of the greatest modern plays in the Western canon.
