The Cherry Orchard - ACTING EDITION

9 Male, 5 Female

Anton Chekhov trans Tom Stoppard Price: $89.00

This is the Stoppard translation first produced by London's Old Vic and then by New York's BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) in 2009 ...

Anton Chekhov was a master whose work revolutionized theatre

In The Cherry Orchard, his last full-length play, an impoverished landowning family is unable to face the fact that their estate is about to be auctioned off

Lopakhin, a local merchant, presents numerous options to save it - including cutting down their prized cherry orchard - but the family is stricken with denial

The Cherry Orchard charts the precipitous descent of a wealthy family and in the process creates a bold meditation on social change and bourgeois materialism

“Without pressing it, this Cherry Orchard, in a nimble new version by Tom Stoppard that invites fresh comic shadings, pushes that sense of the incongruous not so much into farce as into Alice in Wonderland absurdity ... Mr Stoppard’s adaptation is full of classically Stoppardesque instances of eloquence gone awry” ~ The New York Times

"A sure-footed reworking by Tom Stoppard!” ~ New York Magazine

“I can’t recall another production of The Cherry Orchard in which comedy and elegey were so well balanced...there was never a moment when I was anything other than enthralled” ~ The Wall Street Journal
