The Cherry Orchard
This show has now finished

A wealthy family returns to face the impending sale of their country estate, as mounting debts challenge their traditional lifestyle. Four distinct snapshots over a single summer profile their denial, inertia, and the eventual demise of their family roots. Kronos Productions returns to Edinburgh with the premiere of a thought-provoking new reworking of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard. More relevant than ever in a time of austerity, this powerful reworking explores identity, property and class against the backdrop of tempestuous 1980s Britain. 'The very best of Durham's theatrical talent' (Tab). ★★★★ (Scotsman, Salom, 2012).
