The award-winning team that brought you the Huntington's acclaimed 2001 production of Hedda Gabler returns with Chekhov's final masterpiece in a new translation by Richard Nelson. Nicholas Martin directs and Kate Burton stars as Madame Ranevskaya, the irresponsible but hopeful soul who returns from Paris to Russia to find her family’s estate on the block at auction. Fading memories of past glory haunt the family as they await a miracle that never comes. The Cherry Orchard is one of the most heartbreaking comedies ever written—a story you'll never forget.
Huntington audiences saw Hedda Gabler first, before it moved to Broadway and garnered Ms. Burton a Tony nomination for Best Actress.
Approximate Running Time: 2 hours; including 1 intermission
