Playwright: Anton Chekhov


Russian aristocrat Lyubov returns from Paris to her childhood estate, which is due to be sold. Anton Chekhov's 1903 play highlights the growing irrelevancy of the Russian upper classes as the former peasant class begins to gain power.


The Cherry Orchard was presented in repertory as part of the Moscow Art Theatre's season.
