Michaelmas Week 6
Set in 19th Century Russia, THE CHERRY ORCHARD is both a searching social drama and an affectionate family portrait. It depicts the life of a once-rich land-owning family in a changing world. The cherry orchard itself becomes a symbol of the past that the family continue to cling to: once beautiful and distinguished, but now redundant and sacrificed to the forces of the social and economic change.
