Chekhov's classic tragicomedy, translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.

Aristocratic landowner Ranevskaya can no longer afford to keep her childhood home with its beautiful but barren cherry orchard. She rejects the compromise offered by Lopakhin, a local businessman, to cut down the orchard and sell the land for holiday homes. Eventually Ranevskaya and her family are forced to leave the estate which Lopakhin has now bought.

Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard was first staged at the Moscow Art Theatre in January 1904 in a production directed by Konstantin Stanislavsky.

This translation by Stephen Mulrine, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, was first performed by English Touring Theatre in 2000.

This version of The Cherry Orchard is also available in the collection Chekhov: Four Plays.

Set Text >> The Cherry Orchard is a set text for SQA English & Communication Advanced Higher and for WJEC Drama and Theatre Arts A/AS Level.

Press Quotes

'Stephen Mulrine's spry, accomplished translation succeeds in bringing out the comedy of the piece without sacrificing its pathos. The mood moves from merriment to melancholy (and back again) in compelling, quicksilver fashion'

Alex Ramon - British Theatre Guide

'Mulrine's translation captures the turn of the century feeling without being fussy'
