Anton Chekhov was a master whose daring work revolutionized theatre. Robert Burstein declared that "there are none who bring the drama to a higher realization of its human role." In The Cherry Orchard, his last full-length play, an impoverished landowning family is unable to face the fact that their estate is about to be auctioned off. Lopakhin, a local merchant, presents numerous options to save it, including cutting down their prized cherry orchard. But the family is stricken with denial. The Cherry Orchard charts the precipitous descent of a wealthy family and in the process creates a bold meditation on social change and bourgeois materialism.

Review:
"What a marvellous play this is, irresistibly funny yet piercingly sad..." Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph; "Samuel Adamson's vivid new version lucidly captures the slavic emotional and sexual turbulance... This is Chekhov cleverly revalued..." Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard"
Book Description:
Anton Chekhov's classic play The Cherry Orchard, in a new translation by Trevor Griffiths.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. A fresh take on a classic by the Tony Award-winning playwright of The HumansMr. Karams plays arent tearful, but they are often about lossof love, of health, of innocenceand the messy, haphazard, necessary ways we get on with our lives afterward He specializes in painful comedies that really shouldnt be as funny as they are. Karam is a mature writer, very much in command of his gifts. New York TimesStephen Karam is among the very best of his generation of playwrights. New York MagazineThe more you see Anton Chekhovs final play, the weirder it seems The Cherry Orchard contains distinctly bizarre touches: unexplained offstage noises, ominous portents of revolution, and a morbid ending thats nearly Beckettian Adapter Stephen Karam layers American accents (racial and immigration anxieties) into his lean, accessible script. Time Out New YorkStephen Karam is known for his dedication to exploring the idiosyncrasies of human speech and behaviorthe subtleties, the depth, and the wonderfully awkward minutiae. With this new adaptation of The Cherry Orchard, Chekhovs canonical masterpiece about a family on the brink of bankruptcy, Karams fluid style pairs harmoniously with the work of the master playwright.Stephen Karam is the author of two plays that were named finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama: The Humans in 2016 and Sons of the Prophet in 2012. The Humans won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play. His other work includes the play Speech & Debate and a film adaptation of Chekhovs The Seagull for Sony Pictures Classics. A major new interpretation of Anton Chekhovs masterpiece. Shipping may be from our UK warehouse or from our Australian or US warehouses, depending on stock availability.
