Something will happen, you see; if not today, then tomorrow.

Madame Ranevsky has come home to her family estate, and the cherry orchard is just as glorious as ever. But debts are beginning to pile up, and a momentous change is brewing…

A gleaming and shattering drama about a family on the edge of ruin, and a nation on the brink of revolution.

The acclaimed English version by Trevor Griffiths, from a translation by Helen Rappaport, comes to London for the very first time in a major new production.

Part of Revolution

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“Thomas as Mme Ranevsky rightly refuses to let her warmth forgive her complacency.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)

“A clear, well-acted production by Mehmet Ergen that I would strongly recommend... At its best in traditional moments.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“A solid production by artistic director Ergen that many will enjoy, but given the talent assembled that’s a disappointment.”

Kate Maltby (The Times)

“Some finely delineated turns... Williams as a wistful, dutiful and quietly lovelorn Varya... Thomas is good value”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Stripped of its Russian soul... There is more than a touch of Noel Coward’s Hay Fever in the petty frustrations of country life.”

Julia Rank (The Stage)
