Wonderful production !! Great set & directing. Perfect casting & terrific acting. The event was not very crowded, so we had plenty of space to stretch out, etc. It is more difficult for us to make a Friday night screening - so give yourself plenty...continued

Supurb acting and the screen was huge so you almost felt as if the actors were before you live. It was strange to clap, though knowing they could not hear you. I will attend as many of these as I possibly can. They are excellent!

Description

Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, directed by NT Associate Director Howard Davies, whose recent productions of Russian plays (including Philistines, Burnt By the Sun and The White Guard) have earned huge critical acclaim. Zoë Wanamaker will play Madame Ranevskaya. Set at the very start of the twentieth century, The Cherry Orchard captures a poignant moment in Russia’s history as the country rolls inexorably towards 1917. Ranyevskaya returns more or less bankrupt after ten years abroad. Luxuriating in her fading moneyed world and regardless of the increasingly hostile forces outside, she and her brother snub the lucrative scheme of Lopakhin, a peasant turned entrepreneur, to save the family estate. In so doing, they put up their lives to auction and seal the fate of the beloved orchard.
