Event Notes

× The Cherry Orchard is about a family who are desperate to keep their beloved cherry orchard, but seem incapable of doing anything to save it. Written during the turmoil that would lead to the Russian Revolution, the classic play by Anton Chekhov is about love, loss and transformation.

Over a hundred years after it was written, it continues to fascinate and brings to the stage what Chekhov described as, “people … not every moment shooting or hanging themselves or declaring their love. Nor are they are saying clever things every moment. For the most part they are… talking nonsense.”

Welcome to The Cherry Orchard.

Directed by faculty member Bob Frazer and featuring members of the graduating class of Acting for Stage and Screen.
