Anton Chekhov’s last and greatest play, The Cherry Orchard, tells the story of a family on the edge of ruin and a country on the brink of revolution. When Ranevskaya returns to her country home – with its famous orchard – she is torn between its past and the future.
By turns tragic and funny, this new version by Olivier Award‑winner Simon Stephens (A Doll’s House, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), is both dynamic and profound.
Giles Croft has chosen this masterpiece as his final production – and first Chekhov – as Artistic Director. Leaving an incredible legacy of productions including Polygraph, Rat Pack Confidential, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Ashes, Arcadia and The Kite Runner, don’t miss Giles’ final bow at Nottingham Playhouse.
Post-Show Discussion – Tuesday 14 November
with director Giles Croft and members of the cast.
