THE CHERRY ORCHARD BY ANTON CHEKOV

THE CHERRY ORCHARD| BY ANTON CHEKHOV
DIRECTED BY JAMES DEAN PALMER

COMING late spring 2020

All things come to an end: great loves, stable governments, happy times. 

Completely out of money, Ranevskaya is forced to return to her childhood home only to learn that it’s in foreclosure. The house and its beautiful cherry orchard have stood for generations as a refuge for people from all walks of life. Lopakhin grew up dirt poor on the edge of the estate but has now made a fortune in finance.  He has a way save the cherry orchard– if only he can get Ranevskaya to listen.

THE CHERRY ORCHARD is a beautiful portrait of the good times and a haunting reminder that change is inevitable.
