Artful Reading: The Cherry Orchard
March 10, 7 PM
Hosted by Kent Allen
Written by Anton Chekhov
The Cherry Orchard was first produced by the Moscow Art Theatre on Chekhov’s last birthday, January 17, 1904. Since that time it has become one of the most critically admired and performed plays in the Western world, a high comedy whose principal theme, the passing of the old semifeudal order, is symbolized in the sale of the cherry orchard owned by Madame Ranevsky. This work invites any lover of theatre or great literature to enter the world of Madame Ranevsky, Anya, Gayef, Lopakhin, Firs, and the other memorable characters whose hopes, fears, loves, and general humanity are so brilliantly depicted in this landmark of world drama.
