The Cherry Orchard

By Anton Chekhov

Adapted by Jean-Claude van Itallie

Directed by John Miller-Stephany

October 3-13, 2019

Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

One of the great plays of the 20th century, Chekhov’s final masterpiece captures a world and a family in transition. Faced with the sale of their cherished orchard, the Gayev family returns home in an attempt to preserve what they can of their family’s once great estate. This magnificent work combines the hope and absurdity of the human spirit. A stirring, touching piece of theatre you won’t soon forget.
