THE PLAY THE CHERRY ORCHARD

The Independent Culture
Chekhov's magnificent final play and one of the few undisputed masterpieces of the 20th century. The playwright declared it a comedy but some directors think otherwise. Adrian Noble's new RSC production stars Penelope Wilton, Alec McCowen and David Troughton.

A welcome outbreak of critical rapture. "I can remember few Cherry Orchards that have made me laugh so often or at times moved me so much" (The Times). "First-rate... pure Chekhov" (The Guardian). "The finest RSC production of anything for several seasons" (The Financial Times). "A triumphant night" (The Daily Telegraph).
