The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov
September 20, 2022 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Lyubov Andreievna, a tragic heroine in a comic drama, returns to the family home, the authentic way of life of the erstwhile wealthy family is slowly disappearing, and with it, their beloved cherry orchard. In the midst of tremendous social changes, and on the verge of financial collapse, a decision must be made whether to sell their land to make way for holiday cottages or remain in the blissful denial of the unstoppable march of progress.
The characters of the play are wondering, “Why such an anxiousness in such a beauty?”. They allege lies so as not to deal with the truth, which will tantalise them. They choose the easy way to oblivion and evasion, like Lotus-eaters.
Pocket Theatre is reckoned with the final play of the great Russian writer about the unmerciful power of change and the confusion of future uncertainty, the fears but also the hopes for all new things amid huge historical changes.
