The Cherry Orchard

Anton Chekhov

Translated by Peter Gill
PaperBack (01 Aug 2016)


First performed at the Moscow Art Theatre in 1904, directed by Konstantin Stanislavski, The Cherry Orchard remains a classic of the theatre. Completed less than a year before his death at the age of forty-four, Chekhov's last 'comedy' still ranks supreme as a human tragedy of dispossession with audiences and actors alike. 

Peter Gill’s luminous version brings the psychological realism of Chekhov’s characters into sharp focus; fragile souls poised on the brink of happiness which never comes, or trapped in a void between the old world and the new.
