Inspired by experiences in Chekhov's own life, Cherry Orchard follows life of an aristocratic Russian woman and her family as they return to the family's estate. Written as a comedy and containing elements of farce, Stanislavski directed the play as a tragedy in Moscow. Since this initial production, many prominent directors of the world continue to stage this play, each interpreting the work differently.
