Chekhov’s masterpiece examines a family on the edge of ruin and a country on the brink of revolution. The story follows a once wealthy family struggling to save their estate, which has been put up for auction to pay their debts. Will they sacrifice their past glory to save their beloved orchard or will denial and inaction seal their fate? By turns tragic and comic, the play is a bold meditation on social and economic change that is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago!

The Cherry Orchard Auditions: December 5 and 6, 6:30 p.m., Studio Theatre (open to the community)
