Cherry Orchard, The  

Cherry Orchard, The $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
In his masterpiece The Cherry Orchard, Chekhov maintains an exquisite balance between elegiac celebration of the romance of the past, as embodied in the cherry orchard in full bloom, and the awesome prescience of what is so soon to overwhelm Russia - revolution.

The themes are majestic, and yet at the centre of the play is Ranévskaya, a tragic woman who lacks adroitness for survival in a changing world but who has one asset: a capacity for love. It is her solution - and Chekhov's.



Cast : 8M, 5F

Author

ANTON PAVLOVICH CHEKHOV  ( 1860  – 1904)  was a  Russian  physician, dramatist and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. 

His career as a dramatist produced four classics -  The Seagull Uncle Vanya Three Sisters and  The Cherry Orchard , which are rarely absent from the stage -  and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics.  Chekhov practised as a doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress."
