"Handsome and entertaining ... The Chekhov Collective handles Chekhov with a lightness of tone that allows poignant truths to rise to the surface organically", Mooney on Theatre
"The Cherry Orchard’s timeless tale about change hasn’t lost its sensible taste or bite.The Chekhov Collective brings the play to full-bodied life ... Dmitry Zhukovsky’s nimble direction ..." Bynoe On Art
"But it’s a comedy!” said Anton Chekhov of his greatest play.
Life in The Cherry Orchard is threatened as Russia teeters on the brink of enormous change. Yet there is singing and dancing, magic tricks and pratfalls as the lives of its thirteen characters slip between tragedy and farce, illusion and reality. And all the while they are swept along to the steady thrum of time passing.
