The Cherry Orchard

Bristol Old Vic & The Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester

The Cherry Orchard has always been a great play, but this company elevate it further’    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ – Broadway World

‘a new and wonderfully fluid translation… the vodka flows, the music plays, the intrigue never stops’   ★ ★ ★ ★  – The Times

‘hovers exquisitely between cruelty, tenderness and knockabout humour’                          ★ ★ ★ ★ – The Guardian

The tide of change is coming. Madam Ranyevskaya’s liberal world of privilege and pleasure is beginning to show cracks, but she and her family live on in denial. Lopakhin wants to rescue Ranyevskaya.

Meanwhile, revolution hangs in the air, the poor and hungry are pushing at the doors, and the tutor Trofimov predicts a tumultuous change for everybody.

Evan Lordan was Assistant Director to lauded former artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Michael Boyd on The Bristol Old Vic‘s and the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester‘s co-production of The Cherry Orchard.
