The Cherry Orchard, Union Theatre: Phil Willmott directs this new production of Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece, playing at the Union Theatre from the 14th March.
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. But Russia has moved on and their privileged aristocratic life can no longer be taken for granted. A new middle class is buying up parcels of the old estates for holiday homes whilst on the streets of St Petersburg civil unrest threatens all the old certainties of class and privilege. 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.
