O’Reilly Theatre: The Cherry Orchard

Wednesday 14 February 2018 at 7:30 PM

5th Week
14-17 February


When Mrs Ranevsky returns to her ancestral home after the death of her son, she in confronted by all the changes which have happened in her absence and the question of whether her beloved cherry orchard must be sold. In turn tragic and comedic, Chekhov examines love, loss, and the passing of time through the ever-present question of the fate of the family’s estate

Anton Chekhov’s final masterpiece portrays a country and family on the brink of social upheaval. This production reimagines the play in prohibition-era 1920s America: a period, like ours, on the cusp of great political change. Enhanced by stunning design and an atmospheric score of original live jazz music, this production is a compassionate exploration of the challenges of human interaction, both with each other and with the past.
