Since the death of a child, the old house, set amidst its beautiful cherry orchard, has been abandoned for years by most of the family. 

Now the family, their staff and hangers-on are back to decide what to do with the property and the remains of their rapidly depleting fortune. Three generations of masters and servants must assess their best chance of survival and the future of the cherry orchard, in a changing world where nothing can be taken for granted.

New production of Chekhov’s final masterpiece that anticipates the regime change to come.

“Bold adaptation that adds to the immediacy of Chekhov’s classic play.”

Paul Vale (The Stage)

“There's much to admire in Willmott's pacy adaptation... The ensemble cast catch much of the comedy and pathos of Chekhov well.”

Gary Naylor (Broadway World)
