The Gayev family are sociable, intelligent, caring and hopelessly in debt. Unless they can find the funds, their huge estate, including its much-loved cherry orchard, will go to a mortgagee auction. The entrepreneurial son of their ex-farmhand offers them a solution, but they balk at his proposal. Racked by indecision and unable to comprehend the huge social changes on the horizon, they spend one last summer on their beautiful country property, conjuring memories of the past to mask their fears of the future.

Chekhov's endearing and everlasting tragicomedy in which a family's cross generational dispute about the future of their beloved estate creates a clash between socialism and capitalism, legacy and reality in this sharp new adaptation by Stephen Karam, described by New York Magazine as “among the very best of his generation of playwrights.”
