Chekhov’s classic tragicomedy, translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.

Ranevskaya can no longer afford to keep her childhood home with its beautiful but barren cherry orchard. She rejects the compromise offered by Lopakhin, a local businessman, to cut down the orchard and sell the land for holiday homes. Eventually Ranevskaya and her family are forced to leave the estate which Lopakhin has now bought.

The Cherry Orchard is a set text for SQA English & Communication Advanced Higher and for WJEC Drama and Theatre Arts A/AS Level.
