The Cherry Orchard

The Cherry Orchard

All Russia is our orchard. The land is great and beautiful, there are many marvellous places in it. 

When Madame Ranevsky returns to her family estate after an absence of five years, the cherry orchard is as glorious as ever. But unpaid debts and family strife have brought her ancestral home to the brink of ruin. The tide of change is coming, and a civilised and complacent culture is on the brink of collapse.

The Cherry Orchard is the 60th play that Oxford Theatre Guild has presented at Oxford Playhouse. This elegant production balances the wry humour and touching melancholy of Chekhov’s bittersweet masterpiece which, more than a century after it was written, is as popular and pertinent as ever.
