A stirring new version of The Cherry Orchard set in post-apartheid South Africa

This powerful version of Chekhov's famous drama of disillusionment, The Cherry Orchard, is set in rural South Africa on a farm producing cherry trees immediately after the restoration of democracy to South Africa in 1994. Within this context, alive with class conflict and racial tension, Chekhov's potent drama of domestic strife and relationships suddenly takes on a stark political reality.
