Synopsis

Taking the nation’s theatres by storm, Helpmann Award-winning director Simon Stone makes his long-awaited MTC debut with this deliciously fresh adaptation of one of Chekhov’s most enduring comedies.

Ranevskaya returns to the family estate seeking refuge from a failed love affair and impending bankruptcy to face the prospect of losing their beloved cherry orchard. Fortunately, the grocer’s son, now a successful property developer, has a cunning plan. Will Ranevskaya embrace the winds of change, or is the pull of the past too strong?

Pamela Rabe leads a radiant ensemble cast in this boldly original interpretation of the Chekhov classic.
