THE CHERRY ORCHARD

by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Eamon Flack

A homecoming. A picnic. A party. A leavetaking.

It’s an uncertain time. Change is coming, you can sniff it in the air.

A family returns to a home that’s seen better days – but it still has its orchard. Precious, beautiful, but…in the way.
Chekhov’s great, last play needs no embellishment to describe our times. What orchards are we cutting down? What orchards are we planting?

Pamela Rabe leads a large cast from today’s Australia, in a classic as funny as it is profound. This promises to be one of the highlights of 2021.

I’ve wanted to do this for years. With a richly talented gang of actors and after the year we’ve all lived through…it’s time for this beautiful, celebratory, moving play. – Eamon Flack

Supported by the Chair’s Circle.
