The Cherry Orchard
Thu 25 — Fri 26 Apr
at Theatre Royal
A family on the edge of ruin. A country on the brink of change.
Will it take a revolution to destroy their cosy world of wealth and entitlement – or will their own stupidity be enough?
Ignorant to the rumbling of change that surrounds them, the futile attempts of this aristocratic family to maintain status and the bourgeoisie finding meaning in their newfound materialism collide. When the axe finally falls, the sound is as of a giant ticking clock. The world is about to change.
LAMDA return with a brand new adaptation of The Cherry Orchard; a poignant recreation of Anton Chekov’s last and greatest play about the abolition of Serfdom and shifting social orders.
