First performed at the Moscow Art Theatre in 1904, directed by Konstantin Stanislavski, The Cherry Orchard remains a classic of the theatre. Completed less than a year before his death at the age of forty-four, Chekhov's last 'comedy' still ranks supreme as a human tragedy of dispossession with audiences and actors alike. Peter Gill's luminous version brings the psychological realism of Chekhov's characters into sharp focus; fragile souls poised on the brink of happiness which never comes, or trapped in a void between the old world and the new.… (more)

If I ever get interested in plays again, this would be a good place to start. ( )

I enjoyed reading it. Seems like the type of play that is best performed, though, and not read to oneself. ( )

A simple, yet powerful play. The emotions expressed by the characters reflect the turbulent times in Russia with major changes in its entire social structure. ( )

Tragedy, on leaving home. ( )

LATW audio production of the classic play recounting the challenges facing an aristocratic Russian family who desperately wants to maintain their way of life even as their finances fall on hard times. I found it challenging to keep characters straight in this one and wasn't always certain which character was who - possibly complicated by the complexities of Russian names. This would have been easier to keep straight in a traditional production as you have faces to track with the voice. Not a bad listen but not a play I'm likely to revisit. ( )
