Chekhov’s final play is a modern masterpiece. Madame Ranevskaya returns to her family estate in the Russian countryside just as the estate may be sold for debts. Selling their famous cherry orchard would rescue the estate – will it be done? Chekhov’s comedy uses frustrated love, identity, class, just-missed opportunities, and a group of delightful, contradictory characters to examine the nature of social change and the human struggle for happiness.
